From Ton Baker
Many of you have expressed an interest in learning more about keelboat maintenance so that you will feel more confident when you timeshare one of our keelboats. I highly recommend the West Marine website as a source of good, reliable, and detailed information about many aspects of boating and boat maintenance.
1. Go to West Marine website, www.westmarine.com
2. On the menu bar, click on West Advisor
You will be directed to a table of contents page where there are many topics related to boats and boat maintenance such as:

Anchors, Docks & Moorings
Clothing & Accessories
Deck Hardware & Fasteners
Electrical / Electronics
Engine Systems
Navigation
Plumbing
Safety
Sailboat Hardware
Trailering and many other topics.
These are quality articles with tons of information (correct information – not just another person’s opinion). You will learn so much by just reading some of these articles. I personally recommend the article titled: “How to anchor securely”

Check this website out. Discover, learn, and become a more confident skipper.
