Re: Recommended Reading

Manatee .... is the "Did you ever eat a pine tree?" W S Kals or is that as I suspect Gibbons ?

Anywho, ordering Kals Practical Boating and Riddle of the Winds off Alibris as we speak.

also "Away Off Shore: Nantucket Island and Its People, 1602-1890 by Philbrick, Nathaniel" as he's never disappointed. Very good writer indeed.

btw .... all three books ... AUD$7.75.

plus postage.

$63.14 in total.

Methinks Alibris are having a lend. Might try Abe ... their delivery charges are usually less than Alibris though they tend to be more UKcentric than American.

edit .... using ABE bill ended up aud15.00 less than ALIBRIS.
