Most sailors go to sea without prior knowledge of the cruising lifestyle and its demands. Jeremy Hood utilizes his years of personal experience to teach safety measures and prudent seamanship to would-be cruisers so they can set out on a vessel designed or altered with their well-being in mind, aware of potential risks, familiar with possible solutions, and possessing increased self-reliance to help minimize or resolve problems.

Safety Preparations for Cruising begins with a discussion of general preparations and proceeds to comprehensively cover safety material related to every facet of cruising. Topics include the structural integrity of the vessel and its potential for breakdowns, basic skills, dangerous situations and more. Each chapter begins with a real-life experience introducing the topic covered and concludes with a valuable checklist summarizing the discussion and measuring strengths and weaknesses in ourselves and our vessels. This primer on safety is essential for anyone fitting outor preparing for offshore cruising.
