The passagemaking bible updated to help you live your long-distance voyaging dreams First published in 1975, Robert Beebe's Voyaging Under Power revolutionized long-distance cruising, encouraging powerboaters to enjoy what was once exclusive to sailboats and their crews: crossing oceans to exotic, interesting, and beautiful places in comfort with a minimum of problems and expense. Now power-cruising couple Denis and Mary Umstot, whose interest in power voyaging was ignited by Beebe’s work, have updated Voyaging Under Power for the twenty-first century. The much anticipated Voyaging Under Power, Fourth Edition, includes Beebe's original wisdom and philosophy of passagemaking, as well as his groundbreaking thoughts on vessel stability and fuel monitoring. Fourteen new chapters provide insights into a range of additional topics vital for ocean passages and passagemakers, including: Seaworthiness, stability, and other design concepts Options for stabilizing passagemakers including paravanes, active and passive fins, and antiroll tanks Selecting and understanding the critical systems for long-distance voyaging A decision process for choosing a new boat or analyzing the suitability of a used boat An examination of passagemaking models from Nordhavn, Kadey-Krogen, Seahorse, and Dashew, as well as the designs of Stephen Seaton, Michael Kasten, George Buehler, Dave Gerr, and others Highlights of successful and proven passagemakers of the past, including examples from eleven builders and designers First-hand accounts from passagemakers around the globe, including the Mediterranean, Black Sea, South America, South Pacific, Madagascar, and beyond Tips on understanding and predicting weather and waves and what to do in a storm Understanding offshore safety issues, including how to avoid trouble and cross oceans in comfort Choosing and training crew as well as communication tips for a better cruising experience Preparing for and resolving maintenance problems at sea and in distant anchorages "The list of contributors shows the quality of experience in the pages of this fourth edition. Anyone wanting to join, or at least understand the elements of, the long-distance passagemaking lifestyle will find a great deal of knowledge that is realistic, useful, and timely. You'll keep Voyaging Under Power on your pilothouse bookshelf (or its electronic equivalent) for years to come." -- Bill Parlatore, Founder of PassageMaker Magazine "Captain Beebe applied Navy experience, technical creativity, and an open mind to his self-appointed task of inventing the long-range power cruiser. He embraced ideas that others discarded as readily as he rejected solutions others found indispensable. His path, like all innovators, was the uncommon one and his selfless sharing in Voyaging Under Power literally launched a thousand ships. This Fourth Edition of Beebe's classic draws on new ideas and the accumulated wisdom of today's yacht designers and experienced ocean voyagers to further Beebe's cause and liberate thousands more from the tyranny of dry land." -- Michael Jones, Ocean Traveler, Ship Design Collaborator, and Proud Parent of Google Earth

Originally published in 1975, Voyaging Under Power created a revolution in small-boat cruising. Until then, essentially all long-distance cruising was done in sailboats because there simply were no production powerboats capable of crossing oceans. Author Robert Beebes book showed for the first time how to cruise under power, covering boat design, engine selection, outfitting, and operations. The result was the birth of a new market, served by a whole new industry of power cruiser designers, builders, equipment manufacturers, and magazines.

Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness was first published in 1899 in serial form in London's Blackwood's Magazine. Loosely based on Conrad's firsthand experience in rescuing a company agent from a remote station in the heart of the Congo, the novel is considered a literary bridge between the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. With its modern literary approach to questions such as the ambiguous nature of good and evil, the novel foreshadows many of the themes and techniques that define modern literature. This edition includes a glossary and notes to help the modern reader contend with Conrad's complex approach to the human condition.

The last major verse written by Nobel laureate T. S. Eliot, considered by Eliot himself to be his finest work Four Quartets is a rich composition that expands the spiritual vision introduced in “The Waste Land.” Here, in four linked poems (“Burnt Norton,” “East Coker,” “The Dry Salvages,” and “Little Gidding”), spiritual, philosophical, and personal themes emerge through symbolic allusions and literary and religious references from both Eastern and Western thought. It is the culminating achievement by a man considered the greatest poet of the twentieth century and one of the seminal figures in the evolution of modernism.
