Demystifies a potentially confusing topic with clear illustration Apr 19, 2006
Small boat owners have plenty of nautical 'how-to' titles to choose from, but three new arrivals are outstanding picks. Felix marks' JIB TRIMMING: AN ILLUSTRATED GUIDE demystifies the art of jib trimming and focuses instead on a visual approach which uses diagrams and black and white photos throughout to explore the mechanics of jib trimming. From cleats and winches to concepts of tacking and footing, JIB TRIMMING clearly illustrates a potentially confusing topic.
