FREE Downloads of Dashew Books

Dashew Books for FREELast week, Steve and Linda Dashew announced that they were making two of their most popular books available for FREE as a PDF download (both are 15+ years old, but the information is still relevant).  They said, in part,

Dashew Offshore, Beowulf Publishing, and the FPB team have been blessed with the support of the cruising community for many years, and we’d like to return the favor in a small way. We are making two of our books, Mariner’s Weather Handbook and Surviving the Storm, available for free as PDF files.  . . .  We hope the first title helps you avoid the need for the second.

This is a fantastic gift to the cruising community.  The PDFs can be read on virtually any computer, laptop, tablet, Kindle or even smartphone.  To get your copies, click the link below, and you’ll find the download links towards the bottom of the post.  Click on the link for each, and then save to your hard drive (you have to do each one separately).

I posted this on Monday afternoon (when I discovered it) on The Boat Galley’s Facebook page but wanted to post again for those who may have missed it, or who aren’t on Facebook.
