Aint that the truth!!

Also, they follow tracks from one of his symbols to the next. He writes in the way the old pilots used - You have to read b/w the lines a bit. Eg - if he says 'good in neaps', he means forget in springs!

However, saying this, I have used his books like a bible for decades now and could not have more respect for Alan and the others who put their boats into spots so others can follow.
