Their heavy weather book SURVIVING THE STORM is available for free, as well... Absolutely incredible resource, my original $70 volume is one of those books will live on my boat forever:

We all owe a deep debt of gratitude for all that Steve and Linda have shared with sailors over the years, their books and overall knowledge base is truly impressive...

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.

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. https://setsail.com/free-books/
