US-centric, I think, but "Chapman Piloting" is pretty good. There are now about 3 or 4 variations ("C P and small boat handling", "C P and Seamanship", etc., but CP was and remains, I think the "boating bible" over here.)
Should be able to find it on Amazon pretty easily. Retail price is near $60, but a lot of places clear them out fairly regularly (I think I paid $28 for mine, and was promptly informed that someone else picked up a copy the same day for $19.)
