Re: Book - Sail the Farm

I liked a lot of it, found some a bit dated, and possibly a bit risky legally. Entertaining read though. Stuff like catching fish in tropical waters to ship, and glueing gold coins in the bilge come to mind. Would have loved to seen a later updated version!

For those of you out there with E-readers like me. Check out mobileread.com, and especially the calibre software. It is a brilliant library program I have used for the past few years, won't convert every PDF perfectly, but does a fairly decent job. I think this PDF is actually .jpgs and may still need OCRing though.
