TheCruising Life: A Commonsense Guide for the Would-Be Voyager by Jim Trefethen

巡航生活:航海者通俗指南-JimTrefethen

InternationalMarine, 1999, 260 pages

国际海事,1999,260页

The blurbon the cover promises: "How to set sail within five years and live welland adventurously, even if you don't have a boat yet." That's a bigpromise, but Trefethen does indeed lead the reader in that direction. He wrotethe book after more than four years of full-time sailboat cruising with wifeand two children.

封面的广告保证道:如何在5年内开始航海,在很好生活的同时进行历险,即使你现在还没有船。这是个很大的保证,但Trefethen确实可以引导读者到那个方向。这本书是在他在和妻子,以及一双子女在全职航海4年多后写的。

He clearlylearned a lot, and what he has to share is rather different from most booksabout cruising. As he admits in the Introduction, the book is more aboutlifestyle than all the technical issues of boat, equipment, maintenance,seamanship, and all that. For that kind of information you'd do better with abook like "TheVoyager's Handbook" by BethLeonard,"Cruisingfor Seniors" by PaulKeller, or "TheSailor's Book of Small Cruising Sailboats" by Steve Henkel.

That is notto say the book doesn't address practical issues. Much is said about financialissues, for example, as he outlines a five-year plan for saving enough to buy aworthy boat and get started.

很明显他学到很多,他的分享和其他关于巡航的书很不同。就如在介绍中他承认的,这本书更多的是关于生活方式,而不是关于船,设备,保养,航海技能的技术讨论。那些信息可以在其他书籍获得,诸如《海员手册》-BethLeonard,《资深巡航者》-PaulKeller,《小巡航船的水手手册》-SteveHenkel. 但这并是说本书不会提到这些实际操作的问题。但更多的是关于财务,比如他特别提到的可以存足够的钱买到适合的船并开始航海的5年计划。

(Whetheranyone has actually taken him literally and followed that plan, however, is anopen question.)

是否有人真的会完全依照他的计划,拭目以待。

    As thechapter titles reveal, this is a book more for those in the early stages of thedream, who don't have a boat yet (or the means to buy one), who likely hasnever cruised at all but in their mind, and who probably don't even know muchabout it. For this target reader, it's a good book to get you thinking thingsthrough. Sit in a comfy armchair beside the hearth on a winter's night, anddream away while you learn - often with humor and anecdote - how you just mightpull it off.
    就如章节题目说展示的,本书主要用于那些还处在怀有梦想在最初阶段的人,没有船(或没有买船的资源),只在脑海里巡航而没从实践过,甚至于还一点不了解。对于这些目标读者,这是本帮你认真思考的一本好书。在一个冬日坐在舒服的沙发上,在幽默和趣闻的伴随下学习。
    True theauthor is opinionated and writes from his own philosophy of life and personalexperience, but that enriches the book more than detracting from the informationand thoughts it provides.
    显而易见作者有自己的判断并且根据其个人的生活哲学和经历而写,但这不但没有减弱,反而丰富其提供的信息和想法。
    In the endit's rather subjective - but so is the cruising experience itself.
    最后虽然书的内容很主观,但这毕竟就是巡航的经历
    Thedownside is that some readers may become impatient with the "dream"and be seeking more hard facts or immediate concrete steps to get them going -and that's fine. But many other readers will find the book inspiring as ithelps them maintain a positive attitude as they take step after step inTrefethen's direction. And maybe, even if you don't reach that goal fullyyourself, the experience of dreaming and planning in itself may turn out worththe trip.
    不足之处是有些读者可能会对那些‘梦想’失去耐心,并且寻找更多实在的事实或立杆见影的步骤,这都可以。但是更多的读者会发现本书能鼓舞且帮助他们在按照Trefethen的步骤一步步实行时始终保持积极的态度。
