And while much of the original edition has been left in dry dock to make way for the many changes on the water since 1983--like multihull vessels, satellite tracking, and the reality that while all ships remain "she," there is no longer the assumption that it’s a "he" at the helm--Rousmaniere still emphasizes what he’s stressed from the first tack: the importance of
