At 986 pages the fourth edition is up 116 pages on its previous volume and twice the size of the first edition. The Australian Boating Manual is described by the author as “the product of research into what boaties need to and want to know”.
As well as an authoritative practical reference manual for all things boating including: boat design, maintenance, navigation, first aid and a whole lot more the ABM is also contains a self-test multiple choice Q & A section for boat owners to test their knowledge.
