Buchbeschreibung International Marine Publ. Comp.; Camden / Maine, 1978. Buchzustand: Gut. (6.Aufl.).. 262 S.; Illustr. / graph. Darst.; 8° Gutes Exemplar; Umschl. etwas berieben. - Vorsatz von John Letcher SIGNIERT und mit Widmung. - Englisch. // INHALT : Foreword by Hal Roth -- Acknowledgements and Dedication -- Steering and Self-Steering -- Natural Course Stability -- Sheet-to-Tiller Self-Steering -- So You Want to Try a Windvane -- Controls -- Windvanes -- Oversteering -- The Linkage -- The Complete Vane Gear -- The Vane Gear Cookbook -- Electronic Autopilots -- Course-Keeping and Watch-Keeping -- Design for Self-Steering -- Appendix. // Anyone who has sailed alone or short-handed offshore knows the importance of getting the boat to steer herself. Having self-steering or not having self-steering can sometimes mean the difference between a pleasant passage and an unpleasant ordeal. This book is the first to set down in one place all of the considerations that go into making self-steering work. The author has in mind all types of sailing craft, from the smallest to the largest, and all types of self-steering systems - sheet-to-tiller arrangements, vane gears, and electronic autopilots. But this is more than just a survey of what types of equipment are available with details on their mechanical operation. It is also a comprehensive guide to the technique and technology of self-steering. The author, an experienced singlehander with a Ph.D. in aerodynamics and hydrodynamics, describes in terms that all sailors can understand the whys and wherefores of self-steering. He answers such questions as what makes a boat sail herself, what types of hulls are better for the purpose than others, what are the sources of supply for self-steering gear, and how do you go about designing a system for your boat that will be simple, yet effective? The feature that makes this book so so valuable to practical sailors is that it goes far beyond theory. The author shows you how to make your own self-steering system, even if you have limited knowledge of sailing theory. The sailor with average mechanical skills and with this book as a guide, should be able to build his own self-steering system using materials that are readily available.
