BOATWATCH has become the most comprehensive guide in print for the identification of pleasure craft. The handy 9x6 format contains profile drawings of over 3,000 vessels: both power & sail: domestic & imported: the new, recent & famous classics from over a 60 year span. Presented in a format similar to the famous Jane's Fighting Ships, the vessels are presented (by length) nine to a page for easy inspection, comparison & boatwatching pleasure. Used by boat buyers & marine professionals (yacht brokers, underwriters, surveyors, etc.) Boatwatch is also on the recommended reading list for personnel of both the U.S. & Canadian Coast Guard. Used in search-&-rescue missions, it is also a valuable tool for the Customs Dept. & those in the drug surveillance program at sea. No other publication has endeavored to act as the master archivist for the before-it-is-lost-forever history of pleasure boat design. Whether the boatwatching is for personal pleasure or a business necessity, copies of Boatwatch should be at the helm stations & be available as a reference source in the office - yacht club library as well as the public libraries.Averitt, Max W. is the author of 'Boatwatch On-The-Water Guide to Pleasure Boat Identification', published 1990 under ISBN 9780962715204 and ISBN 0962715204.
