Coast Guard License..., by Budd Gonder

I am going to study at home for my Master 100GRT Near Coastal license (yes, I believe it can be done)and am looking for the following text that is out of print:

The Coast Guard License: Six Pac to Master-100 Tons : Sail and Power: Budd Gonder: 9781880093061: Amazon.com: Books The Coast Guard License: Six Pac to Master-100 Tons : Sail and Power: Budd Gonder: 9781880093061: Amazon.com: Books



Has anyone used this text to prepare for the exam? I have all the Bowdich, Chapman's, etc. texts which I am using at the moment but I have been told by some folks that this book is not to be missed. However, it seems it is out of print and all the copies on the internet are quite expensive, ~$95 at best, over 200 at worst, though the original price is only $29.95. Maybe there is still a site out there with a reasonably priced version but I don't think so. doylemarine.com has them for 31.95 but when I called to confirm, they said they were out of stock and could not get any more.

Does anyone out there have a copy they would be willing to part with for somewhere around the original price? You could even have it back once I complete the exams...

Thanks

I used Charlie Wing's study guide.
It worked for my son and I.

Try this link; the coast guard license - Alibris Marketplace
I almost always find rare books here.
Good luck.

Perhaps the paperback version, also available used from Amazon starting at $29.50 would do.

Gish! I used the Houston Marine books while working as an instructor for those who needed the licenses. 100, 200 ton and an occasional six pax.
So check with Houston marine and other schools to see if they have home study.
