“With this book there is no reason for prudent mariners to be surprised by imperfect weather forecasts or local conditions that general forecasts may not cover. Michael Carr, himself a proven mariner, has put together this excellent educational reference for his fellow mariners. I highly encourage you to read this book.” –from the foreword by Lee S. Chesneau, Senior Forecaster, Marine Prediction Center, NOAA
