Praise for the author's bestselling Instant Weather Forecasting: Excellent value and a good cockpit companion. Classic Boat I have a favorite little bookInstant Weather Forecasting, by Alan Wattsthat I have to replace every four or five years because of overuse. Almost every time we go to sea, we spend time looking at its color photos of different types of clouds and comparing them to the clouds we see above us. Then we carefully read Watts's analysis of what the clouds portend. Lin Pardey, SAIL Another gem that's a dog-eared favorite. Coastal Cruising
