Boat Green (PDF)
50 Steps Boaters Can Take to Save Our Waters
Recreational boating is a pastime enjoyed by millions. Yet the waters and marine environment that boaters so love are in serious jeopardy from pollution, from resource mismanagement, and from misunderstanding. Boaters can help to change that. Although a relatively small part of the problem of marine environmental degradation, recreational boaters can be a huge part of the solution, writes Clyde W. Ford, an avid boater of over 20 years, whose encounters with polluted waters galvanized him to explore workable solutions.
Boat Green provides a host of environmentally sound boating practices, based on scientific research and practical boating experience.
In this book, boaters will learn ways to:
- Reduce vessel operation and maintenance costs
- Improve vessels performance
- Increase safety and health of vessel operators and crew
- Increase awareness of marine issues and
- Enhance enjoyment of the marine environment
And all of these steps will help to lessen the impact of recreational boating on the marine environment. These are practical solutions that have been field-tested and refined on actual vessels cruising the Pacific Northwest waters.
Boat Green is an essential guide for recreational boaters, and for all those concerned about protecting the marine environment.
