Recreational boating is a pastime enjoyed by millions. Yet the waters and marine environment that boaters so love are in serious jeopardy from pollution, resource mismanagement, and misunderstanding. Boaters can help change that. Although a relatively small part of the problem of marine environmental degradation, recreational boaters can be a huge part of the solution, writes Clyde W. Ford, an avid boater of over twenty years, whose encounters with polluted waters galvanized him to explore workable solutions.

Boat Green provides a host of environmentally sound boating practices, based on scientific research and practical boating experience. In this book, boaters will learn ways to:

  • Reduce vessel operation and maintenance costs
  • Improve vessels performance
  • Increase safety and health of vessel operators and crew
  • Increase awareness of marine issues
  • Enhance enjoyment of the marine environment

All of these steps will help lessen the impact of recreational boating on the marine environment. These are practical solutions that have been field-tested and refined on actual vessels cruising the Pacific Northwest waters.

Boat Green is an essential guide for recreational boaters and for all those concerned about protecting the marine environment.

Clyde W. Ford is the executive director of EcoMarine Institute and author of nine books, including the award-winning The Long Mile and the Charlie Noble series of contemporary nautical suspense novels. Ford enjoys cruising the waters of the Inside Passage aboard his single-engine biodiesel trawler.
