marine_prod-books-fair_wind-smallFair Wind and Plenty of It tells the story of an obsession, as Captain Dan Moreland, driven by desire to make his mark in the world of traditional sail, rallies forces to convert a 69-year-old North Sea trawler into a seaworthy tall ship, and then assembles the crew to sail it. It's the story of the uneasy balance that is achieved on board, where insubordination and rancour must be kept in line among a crew whose only connection is their common desire to be part of this journey.

marine_prod-books-galley_guru-smallFor the cook who sails and the sailor who cooks, Galley Guru is a connoisseur's guide to simple ways to keep your grip in the galley. Prepare, preserve, and present, from a tiny space, real food that would not be ashamed to have come from a gourmet kitchen many times the size.

marine_prod-books-stitches-smallStitches Explorer is a 74-foot yawl, built in 1966 with an extensive rebuild in 1992, and very well equipped, with two of all the important pieces of equipment. In 2000, with an international crew, she set off on a journey that would include 62 countries, 180 ports, two major pirate areas and one pirate boarding. Starting from Florida, she headed south, down the Caribbean, through the Panama Canal, across the Pacific to Australia, Indonesia and Thailand, then across the Indian Ocean...

marine_prod-books-fiberglass-smallFilled with easily accessed information aimed at giving the boatowner the skills to tackle typical fibreglass repairs using either polyester resin or epoxy. Includes blister repair, repairs to cord decks, hole repair, touch-ups, etc. Includes illustrations.

marine_prod-books-endurance-smallBeyond Endurance is the story of that race, which culminated in a night of terror, courage, and split-second reactions, of ferocious seas that forced each sailor either to give up and face almost certain death or to find within himself the extraordinary strength and skill that might, just might, keep him alive. Not all of them made it. Among the survivors were twenty-six men from Canada, Britain, and the United States, whom Mayers has interviewed about that they still call "that night".

marine_prod-books-boatowners-smallIn his latest book, Calder walks the reader through the repair, maintenance, and setting up of the boat's primary systems, including the electrical system, electronics equipment, generator sets, solar panels, wind and water generators, the engine, transmission, pumps, steering, waste disposal systems, and more. Destined to become a highly trusted companion aboard all types of boats for years to come.

marine_prod-books-spice_neclace-smallSpices and herbs are the heart and soul of Caribbean cooking, adding more to the pleasures of the table here than perhaps anywhere else. In The Spice Necklace, award-winning food and travel writer Ann Vanderhoof embarks on a voyage of culinary discovery, as she follows her nose (and her taste buds) into tiny kitchens and fragrant markets, through rainforest gardens and to family cook-ups on the beach, linking each food to its traditions, folklore and history.

The Middens of Galiano Island

By Catherine Dook

We motored our way into Montague Harbour along a twisted channel with our engine muffled by the leaning trees.

“This is peaceful,” I told my husband, John.

“Look,” I pointed to an eagle sitting on the top of a tree overlooking the channel entrance like a sentinel giving permission for us to pass. Dignified, unruffled, his impassioned gaze noted and then dismissed us, as uninteresting and perhaps unworthy. I was tired. We’d pulled up anchor at Portland Island that morning, and the grind of the diesel engine had worn me down.
