"Buy a Boat with Confidence" by Doug Dawson"

Doug wrote this book to help you buy the right boat, and also save money and avoid problems - buy like a pro! He reveals all the costs, shows you how to do your research, inspect and test-drive boats, and when to hire a surveyor - and finally, how to complete the deal!     DETAILS & ORDER

Doug is a life-long boater, writer for "Power Boating Canada Magazine" and "Canadian Yacthing", past president of the Ontario Marina Operator's Association (OMOA).

The things I don't know about boating could fill a book. Well, I found that book! "First Mate 101" has all the confidence-building detail you need to start boating like a pro. Get an E-Book copy of "First Mate 101" now. A great gift for your crew. More about the book...
