"Yesterday's follies will surely be tomorrow's repeats." That principle, quoted from Boat Smart Chronicles,
lies at the heart of Tom Rau's recent book on boater safety. With a storyteller's approach, Rau recounts more than 200 boating mishaps on Lake Michigan and follows many with a "Boat Smart Brief," which provides the lesson learned. Rau is a retired Coast Guard officer who served 27 years, many on Lake Michigan. Seaworthy Publications, $19.95. boatsmart.net/book
