You pay shipping (envelope and postage, I suggest USPS book rate but it's up to you).

Over two years living aboard and I'm still weeding things out. You might look them up on amazon for fuller descriptions. I have the following, each listed with why its on the "to go" pile:

Annapolis Book of Seamanship, 3rd ed, John Rousmaniere
- good book, good reference but I like Chapman's better and don't need both.

Cruiser's Handbook of Fishing, Scott Bannerot & Wendy Bonnerot
- excellent book, I ended up with two copies and only need one

Good Boatkeeping, Zora & David Aiken
- fast, mildly interesting read, somewhat basic and not a great reference

Creating Comfort Afloat, Janet Groene
- interesting read, opinions may differ and I'm beyond this level

Living Aboard, Gordon & Janet Groene
- good overview, I have more technical references for specific subjects

The Essentials of Living Aboard, Mark Nicholas
- another overview text

Smarter Charters, Christopher Caswell
- good material, I have my own checklists from years of chartering

Fifty Places to Sail Before You Die, Chris Santella
- good winter read, I have a list of where I want to go - some overlap with these 50, some different.

Pirates Aboard, Klaus Hympendahl
- interesting case studies, a bit dated, I don't expect to want to read it again.

"Wayne, yes I'm still out here. She's looking good and you'll love her. The 38.1 is a perfect size for 2 people with occasional guest (s). Plus she's a sweet sailing boat. I'll attach a short video of one I was delivering…"

Cabin eyebrow windows

Good morning gang,I have received both port and starboard cabin windows from Beneteau for replacement as the existing leak and are badly etched. Beneteau has referred me to the dealership for installation but I'm having trouble getting a response.   Does anyone have any experience replacing these and any recommendations. JohnSee More
