This is another paragraph

Review: In it's third edition, the book's title is not an exaggeration. By keeping to the point and dealing only with getting immediate results from the task at hand, author Michael Verney manages to reasonably cover complete yacht care in just 261 pages....So broad is the scope of the book it could qualify as an encyclopedia of yacht care. It covers sail and power, every basic boat system and component, and fiberglass, wood, aluminum and ferrocement hull materials. n nThe book is probably one of the few modern references (it was revised in 1997) to cover caulking and paying planked hulls and decks, making mast hoops for a gaff rigged sail boat, and careening a hull for bottom maintenance. If you are looking for a concise, up-to-date book encompassing modern as well as traditional boat maintenance and nautical skills, you could not do better than this.
