Free is good.  When it comes from Steve and Linda Dashew, it’s even better. As a way of saying thank you to the cruising community for their support over the years, the Dashews are making two of their books available for free as PDF files.

A “Mariner’s Weather Handbook: A Guide to Forecasting and Tactics”, as the title states, is a complete guide to understanding and forecasting marine weather.  

And “Surviving the Storm: Coastal and Offshore Tactics” discusses methods for dealing with heavy weather based on information gathered from professional and amateur sailors around the world.
