Radar for Mariners
Includes Radar Resources CD w/ Interactive Starpath Radar Simulator Test Runs<
by David Burch
Nothing beats radar for guiding your boat through the darkest night or the thickest fog. Radar enables you to plot a fix from just a single buoy or landmark, and it is the only navigation tool that tells you not just where you are, but who else and What else is out there with you. Today’s smaller, affordable, more powerful radars make more sense than ever for sailors and powerboaters.
This complete, in-depth manual shows you how to:
Choose the best radar model for your sail- or powerboat
Install, adjust, and operate your system
Interpret the images on your radar screen
Pilot your boat and track the movements of vessels around you
Use radar to track and avoid squalls, to outmaneuver competitors in a yacht race, and for other specialized tasks
Interface your radar with a digital compass, GPS, or electronic chart
The accompanying Radar Resources CD includes sample radar manuals, ebook of the nav rules, annotated radar images, printable plotting sheets, and a time-limited demo copy of the Starpath Radar Trainer, so you can see what that program looks like in action to decide if you want to purchase a copy for further study and practice "underway". Paperback, 250 pg. Pub 2005.
