Look out! New boating humor book Offers “Dangerous” Humor
Warning: Contains boating humor and trace amounts of irony. May not be suitable for all waterfront
characters—and you know who you are.
In his good-humored guide to the many idiosyncrasies
of boaters and boats, veteran skipper and award winning
boating writer Marlin Bree laughs it up with
fellow mariners in The Dangerous Book for Boaters: A
humorous waterfront guide to the ways and wiles of
With 60 whimsical illustrations and cartoons, the
Dangerous Book develops its boating humor in 15
tongue-in-cheek chapters ranging from surviving seasickness
to coping with the marine head. Dangerous
veers into uncharted waters with chock-a-block wit and
wisdom ranging from “Skipperhood” to dealing with a
party-hearty crew who haven’t a clue—and don’t really
want one. Not overlooked are such ripe subjects as nautical
dress codes and marlinspike boat operations—or
lack of them—and even advice on perfecting the art of
romance in a small boat while at sea.
From making sense of salty sayings to defining
“naviguessing,” this all-in-one guide to sail and powerboats will give crusty seadogs and their trusty crews a
boatload of laughs. “If everything else fails, you can always do one more thing,” author Bree counsels. “You
can always laugh!”
