Dave Selby Impractical Boat Owner book launch
PBO Columnist Dave Selby has released a book of his early writings. The Impractical Boat Owner: Tales and Trials from years of Floundering Afloat is a collection of Dave’s columns, expanded for the book, and with additional ‘Lessons Not Learned’ hints and tips boxes, all illustrated with cartoons by Jake Kavanagh. Themes covered include: First attempts at sailing, how not to sail singlehanded, mysteries of maintenance, how not to sail with a dog, the impenetrable mysteries of navigation and weather and how not to race. The
Impractical Boat Owner is an antidote to all that’s written about expensive shiny new yachts, self-improvement, the quest for qualifications and practical skills.
Dave Selby’s The Impractical Boat Owner is published by Bloomsbury, costs £9.99.
