Thank you... I did download several from there, and wasn't able to read any of them; a couple weeks ago, I found it right away, and read it with no problem. lol

They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters;

These see the works of the LORD, and his wonders in the deep.

For he commandeth, and raiseth the stormy wind, which lifteth up the waves thereof.

They mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths: their soul is melted because of trouble.

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man, and are at their wit's end.

Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses.

He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still.

Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven.

Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!





Psalm 107:23-31

I was finally able to find this today.

Found it by Googleing "Sailing the Farm". The 5th search result was a off copy of it.

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.
