By Paul Gelder
On the spot reporting with action photographs show what happens when typical family boats fall victim to eight different types of sailing disaster. How quickly does a cabin fill with water when the hull is holed? How do you control a gas leak or fire on board? What should you do first when dealing with a dismasting or a capsize through 360 degrees? By providing cruising and racing yachtsmen with vivid accounts of such extreme events, Crash Test Boat equips the reader with vital knowledge on what to do if disaster strikes and, ultimately, gives everyone on board a greater chance of survival if the boat is overcome.
