Emergency Companion (Practical Companions) by Jon Winge



The essential onboard guide to staying afloat and alive at sea-when you run into trouble

Written by a respected marine journalist with over thirty years of boating experience, this practical guide offers immediate solutions to any number of problems encountered while at sea. Addressing such dangers as fire; taking on water; running aground; losing power, mast, or rudder; man overboard; becoming lost; and extreme weather, the book offers clear guidance on gaining control of the situation, along with easily understandable photos and illustrations. Other key

safety measures, such as having a good understanding of first aid, the Global Maritime Distress Safety System (GMDSS), flares and signals, are also described in detail. This handy, waterproof guide would complete any boat's equipment list.

  • Detailed advice for most emergency situations
  • A must-have reference for all sailors, power boaters, and motor boaters
  • The author of numerous books in Norwegian, John Winge has cruised all over world

As important as a first-aid kit, Emergency Companion is any boater's

first line of defense against managing any mishap or potential disaster at sea.
