I purchased this book last spring--and it now looks like its been through a circumnavigation and it hasn't even made it to the boat yet! It's been spilled on and sat on and had numerous folks thumb through it. It is a great book, though

Have a couple of editions....older in the house library, and the 5th edition on the boat. Anyone have an guidance as to the newest updates over the 5th Edition that make it a worthwhile purchase?
