Any recommendations on good Seamanship/sailing audiobooks?

Listened to these recently.

Sailing Alone Around the World: Joshua Slocum
Treasure Island
Captain Blood by Rafael Sabatini

Thanks

If you have a device with text-to-speech capability, you can download free text files at Project Gutenberg . They also have some audiobooks, of -----variable----- quality.

LibriVox is a good audiobooks source --
'Snark' is great fun -- Cruise of the Snark.

...and lots of audio & texts here -- Internet Archive

I like to listen to audiobooks on roadtrips, but the text to speech books tend not to keep me captivated after awhile.

I got fairly bored of Cruise of the Snark. I made my way through it and it had lot's of interesting moments, but I found myself struggling at times.

I've been looking through Librivox. Any recommendations appreciated.

thanks
