The Lo-tech Navigator

Crowley, Tony, 1940-

(Book - 2004)
The Lo-tech Navigator
Modern sailor have become increasingly dependent on their expensive electronics. But what happens when that equipment fails? What about those sailors who can't afford such gadgets in the first place? In The Lo-Tech Navigator, author Tony Crawley demonstrates that there is little need to purchase expensive fittings when one might just as well build simple but effective devices from materials readily available. He outlines dozens of ingenious projects in meticulous detail. Combining a little ingenuity with a wealth of common sense, Crawley's practical suggestions will save sailors hundreds of dollars. They might even come up with a few clever alternatives of their own. Scattered among the projects is a collection of seafaring tales, puzzles, poetry, and nautical oddities, all of which enhance the text with adventure and whimsy.
