WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT CAPT MARTI'S "IDI-YACHT" BOOKS & SEMINARS

 

Chris Parker, The Caribbean Weather Center, S/V Bel Ami, "Marti's books should come as standard equipment with each new radio sold to cruisers. Don't be an idiot, be an "Idi-Yacht"...get Marti's books.....,"

"The most sensible one (book) we've read so far!!....,"

Hi Capt Marti!  We recently purchased your SSB book for the Bahamas, Cuba, Florida and Eastern Gulf of Mexico (even though we aren't going to be in those locations for awhile).  We are trying to learn to use our SSB and your book has been the most sensible one that we've read so far!! You mention that you have other books underway for other locations and we are VERY interested in knowing how we could acquire them.  We recently left Seattle are will begin our trip down the west coast to San Francisco tomorrow. Thanks for a great book and writing in terms us 'simple' folks can understand!! Danica Richard & Jay Tremblay

"Filled with invaluable information...,"

Hi Marti,  First I want to tell you how wonderful we think your Marine SSB Radio For Idi - Yachts is.  My husband and I recently bought a 54DS Jeaneau Sun Odyssey.  It will be delivered in December and will be commissioned in May.  We live in Rhode Island and plan to head south October of 2004.  Having said that, I have been studying to get my Ham Radio License and was in West Marine and saw your wonderful book.  Last May we were fortunate enough to have been invited to bring Schooner America up from Key West to Newport, RI.  Each day of our voyage, our Captain would call Herb and wait patiently by his radio to find out the weather conditions.  They believed he was the most reliable weather forecaster available.  I was telling my husband that we will need to get a hold of the Captain and find  out how to hail Herb on the radio.  While reading your book, I found Southbound II Weather Net - SSB, 12359 USB at 2000-2200Z Daily!  Well, you can imagine how delighted we were.  Your book is filled with invaluable information.  I was also wondering if you have completed any subsequent volumes?  We would be particularly interested in the Northeastern United States, Eastern Caribbean and if you have any of Eastern Canada, including Newfoundland, Quebec and Labrador.  We also crewed on a Little Harbor 60 last summer in Newfoundland and can't wait to go back.  Again, thanks for the wonderful book, and if you can help us with any further volumes, please let me know.  Who knows, maybe we will see you when we get down to Florida.  Happy cruising, Linda and Bill Knowles

“Solid information, very useful…,”

This is an excellent book and those are hard to find on this subject. I write for several magazines and I've never seen a better book on the subject. Marti has written a straightforward succinct book on a subject that many people find difficult. She makes it simple and covers the subject thoroughly. Dave Wheeler, Contributing Editor for Southern Boating, also published in The Cruising Guide to Abaco, Motor Boating, Power & Motoryacht, The Best of Sail, Sea, and Yachting.

“Easy to understand…”

 A valuable tool, easy to understand and a good bit of humor on the side. A great gift for cruising yachts people that are also involved in Ham Radio and SSB. Jan, N0LTA, aboard MV Morningstar

“An excellent guide book on marine radio...,”

Capt. Marti Brown learned to use her marine Single Side Band radio the hard way. She bought one for her cruising boat and tried to master the intricacies of its use while exploring Florida and The Bahamas. Along the way she discovered that many cruisers learned the same way she did by picking up little bits of knowledge along the way. Her book "Marine SSB for Idi-Yachts" is the result of many interviews with cruisers and a desire to fill the information void between the "die hard ham" and the casual radio user. SSB radio is a traditional method of marine communication that has increased in popularity because of new radio modem technology that allows users access to inexpensive wireless e-mail. Also, new software products have eliminated the need for weather fax machines and allow cruisers to connect their SSB radio directly to their PCs. These services require a firm grasp of SSB operations and this book is a great introduction for beginners.Is it a complete guide to everything about ham or SSB radio? No, but it's not meant to be and that's the reason I liked it. You have to start somewhere and the simple guide book format of this rare little jewel is very easy to understand.
