Improve your seamanship, one line at a time at Power & Motoryacht University
If you do any sort of woodworking for your boat, keeping a sharp edge on your tools is very important. Sharp tools produce better work, cut with less effort and can be safer to use because you do not have to force them, so there is less pressure behind the cutting edge.
There are three things that are sure to ruin a day on the water: a bad departure from your slip or mooring, a screw-up while docking, anchoring or mooring, and mal de mer — seasickness.
Avoiding boat-handling mistakes is a matter of practice, situational awareness and attention to detail. Seasickness is a whole ’nuther kettle of fish.
