Practical Boat Owner - - News -

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.
