Sailors Sketchbook

I just decided to check up on the 1000 day sproutstravaganza to see if they had scurvy yet, and in one of the recent pictures the guy is reading a copy of Binghams Sailors Sketchbook. I say to myself, "self, you have a copy of that book, look it up". I just looked up Sailors Sketchbook on Amazon and found they had 1 copy selling for $135. That seems to be really high to me. Is the book that rare to sell for so much? I bought my copy in excellent condition for $10 in a used book store that is owned by an old merchant mariner (lots of good old sailing books). Have the good folks at Amazon (or the vendor that is selling it on Amazon) lost it or am I just a savy guy?

Tartan34C will become famous soon enough
A good book and my copy was borrowed and never made its way back. I won’t pay more then 20 or 30 dollars to get another but I will find one in some book store in some port at some point.
All the best,
Robert Gainer

arbarnhart is on a distinguished road
I am sure it was a misprint; probably should have said $1.35 because baby boomers are getting old and don't have a yen for a Euro anymore. If you can break your emotional attachment to it, I will give you a buck for it.


It's a joke! See this thread if you don't get it.

I do love Bruce Bingham's illustrations... did you ever notice how cats end up in many of his drawings... I'd love to get another copy, since my previous copy, like Tartan34C's, has wandered off and not returned... but I wouldn't pay an exorbinant price for it.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Cats and Mice. I think I remember reading somewhere that he kept a pet mouse on his boat, but not a cat.

I just remember the cats, because I have a cat on each hull of my boat... it was for a nickname I had for my late wife... so I tend to remember cats.
