The author, Neville Merritt, kindly sent me a copy of his first book called Angling Boats to read.
This book is a guide to owning and running a small boat for sea angling.
It covers everything from buying a boat, what types of boat there are, where to keep it with all the pros and cons of owning a boat. Also included is equipment required, both essential and others, safety, regulations, basic navigation, weather forecasts, VHF radios, ropes and knots etc.
In fact the book covers everything a novice boat owner needs to know to get started and maybe remind or update information that an experienced owner should know.
Having read the book and I can honestly say I was most impressed with the content, layout, sketches and good drawings to make it clear what the author is trying to explain. I learnt a lot and I am sure it will be one of those books that are often used to refer back to when trying to find out some information.
I would thoroughly recommend this book to a novice boat owner as there is not that much information available even on the internet and I am sure even some experienced boat owners would learn something from it.
The book is published by Arford Books and can be ordered direct from Neville's web site Boat Angling or Amazon books or any good book store. ISBN: 0955324203
