Which country are you viewing this series from? I can't seem to find them on the N America Netflix or are you just renting the DVD? Wouldn't mind setting up a proxy if I could stream it.

LOL...ok John, I can take a hint. I'll buy a copy. Lord knows, I've only scratched the surface of sailing.

I tried and failed to find them, too. The OP is from 2010 so it is quite possible that Netflix no longer has them.

I looked on Hulu Plus, too, with no luck.

Well maybe I'll sign up for the free introduction to the DVD rental service just for this series, then cancel before they charge money.

Didn't notice that I was quoting a 3-years-old conversation!

Re: Annapolis Book of Seamanship

You can rent them for very little $ from Amazon Instant Video.

I just realized that I was only looking at Netflix streaming. I don't know if you can get a DVD through Netflix.

Leave them at a marina with a book swap?

Sell 'em online?

Or donate them to a library, sailing club, someplace where they might help the gene pool.

Re: Annapolis Book of Seamanship

No one is suggesting to use them as an anchor or a heavy-weather drogue?

The sailing club I'm in usually has a book exchange sometime during the winter, I'll bring one there. I think it's the most useful sailing book I've read.

And I'll probably keep one copy of the third edition so I can compare it to the fourth and see what changed.
