Surviving Coastal - Open Water
Surviving Coastal and Open Water
By Greg Davenport
The second in Greg Davenport's 'Books for the Wilderness' series, this book covers the techniques and equipment necessary for surviving in water. Photographs and drawings illustrate gear and techniques. Survival skills include keeping warm, creating a campsite, purifying and de-salting water, and finding food along the coast. Learn to navigate with a map, compass, and sexton and how to use a sea anchor and improvise sails. Learn how to signal for help, especially in open water.
"The contents of this book are very much more comprehensive than the cover suggests. It is for all boat users...a book I would want to have with me in a remote survival situation. It is a very readable book and presents some fascinating concepts." -- The Canoeist, February 2004.
