Gift Guide: Boating Books and Calendars

The 3rd annual Daily Boater Holiday Gift Guide includes a wide selection of nautical gift ideas, including boating books and calendars... 

Boating Books and Calendars

There were so many nautical books to choose from this year it was hard to narrow it down to just a few gift ideas, but we found a few we think you'll enjoy. And for calendars, we're only featuring one, but it's the third year in a row so it should come as no surprise - and it seems to get better every year...

The Boat Galley Cookbook

You've been reading her tips here on the Daily Boater since February, but over the past four years, Carolyn Shearlock and her good friend Jan Irons and have been writing a comprehensive cookbook for cruisers called The Boat Galley Cookbook, and it was finally published last month.

The Boat Galley Cookbook is filled with the same type of detailed information that Carolyn shares in her posts here on the Daily Boater, with more than 800 everyday recipes made from obtainable ingredients without electrical appliances, plus in-depth information on unfamiliar cooking techniques, food storage, substitutions and more.

The 2013 Spectacular Superyachts Wall Calendar

Superyachts Calendar

For the third year in a row, we are proud to feature the Spectacular Superyachts Calendar in our gift guide from our freinds at Megayacht News. Not only does this 16 x 11 inch calendar contain beautiful pictures of the finest yachts in the world, but a portion of the sales are donated to the International SeaKeepers Society. Order your calendar today at

The Hungry Dog book
The Hungry Dog

A quick and easy read, but recommended only for adults due to some of the content, including descriptions of drug use. We found The Hungry Dog to be a raw and insightful look into the life of a young man from Long Island whose path lands him aboard a commercial swordfishing boat in the Windward Passage, among other places.
