The 4th edition, 1000 page Australian Boating Manual is the most comprehensive and best known boating book in Australia. Written by Captain Dick Gandy, the Australian Boating Manual is not only a reference book and text book but also contains 2600 multiple-choice Q&A to test yourself or to set examinations for others.

This latest edition has introduced the Work Health & Safety  Act which starting in 2012 will gradually replace the Occupational Health & Safety Act throughout Australia. Similarly, the Material Safety Data Sheet has been renamed Safety Data Sheet in order to cover not just materials but all aspects of safety.

The ABM is now also available as an eBook for both PC and Mac. While most people find it easier to study from a printed book, its digital version is the ideal mobile reference material. Both versions of the ABM are almost equally priced with the book retailing for $90 and the eBook retailing for $88. However, if the two are purchased together, the eBook is half price.

To assist existing owners of the hard copy to also acquire an eBook, it is available to everyone at half price until May 30, 2012.
