Re: Free Dashew Weather Handbook

My two cents....I've read both and they are worth the read.

The 500mb discussion was eye opening and a way to receive it will find its way onboard.

Also, I really enjoyed the information on drogues vs. chutes.

Re: Free Dashew Weather Handbook

Sorry to dredge up this old thread, but I just found the Dashew series of books on their website. What a fantastic resource!!! And not only do they have the Surviving the Storm and the Mariner's Weather Handbook, but also one on Practical Seamanship and the Offshore Cruising Encyclopedia. ALL FOR FREE!! Amazing. Thank you to Steve and Linda for sharing their knowledge with us.
