Sure, the gCaptain forum contains a few surly comments but, just as a comment seems out of line, we are reminded of the intellect and curiosity of our fellow mariners. The post that best exemplifies this is titled “Best Nautical Books for the Merchant Mariner” , as it quickly reminds us why sailing is a noble profession and the reason why we continue to face the hardships of a life at sea.

To help get you through the winter weather, we have included a few of the books in a new widget located in the sidebar of this blog. You can also view most of the books in the gCaptain ship store located HERE.

*And be sure not to miss gCaptain’s very own book Fire on the Horizon: The Untold Story of the Explosion Aboard the Deepwater Horizon by publisher Harper Collins.
