You'll set more out of football A TIPS FROM The average inland Canadian can't tell a good boat from a henhouse. It's the only possible excuse for the freaks and oddities that Infest most of our waterways. Make a check at your local lake and you will find poor designs quite incapable, of doing the work for which they sere bought.

And here la the crux ef tbe matter st yea knew what yea are leaking isr. Boating Is around 4.100 years old ana ever since the time the first primitive rolled e log into the water and used h as support to cross a river, man has been steadily improving his knowledge of this great art and skill. v . If yon were born along a sea' the chances are ' food you will have grew up with basic knowledge of boats and boating. This is easily the best way ta become an expert.

It's an easy out to suggest- to people they go along and consult with an expert before buyinc. but all too often this leads to a case of the blind leading the blind. Very few people understand basics in hull shapes and designs and even many of our better boaters are unsure of groundwork principles. Yea caa't always trust a beat salesauus far tbe vast saaatity these days d s a ' t knew what the beck they're talking ah eat. I'm not condemning all sales-" men, net all boateuiioers, not all designers, not all experts. am hist stating a blunt truth that the experts are few and the speakers are many. But at last 1 can honestly say that I can offer a partial solution. In the form ot the finest textbook on basic boating I have ever seen. This book, Basic Boating. Piloting . and Seamanship by Howard L. Andrews and Alex- ander L. Russell Is published at U by Prentice Hall.

And these are aet glassed ever, but dealt with in a superb style with first class II-hsstratieae ta ram heme each. This book covers a vast array of subject from rules of the road, to aids to navigation, from small boat piloting to small boat handling under power. It Includes weather, boats un der sail, deck seamanship and a long awaited section on man ners and customs. I'll not suggMt that reading this book will turn a landlubber into a seaman, but I do honest ly feel It is almost as good as a full length course. It's Interesting reading and a most complete manual covering subjects ot the widest range and of the most practical use., -: Read a and move towards being an expert boating man, let's make our waterways safe by knowing how to behave et all times. .
