Sea-boats, Oars and Sails

Paperback
by O'Brien, Conor
"Most of what is written about boats is naturally based on the orthodox view, and the man who wants a boat neither for class racing nor as a harbour ornament, but to go to sea in, gets little guidance from it.

A White Boat from England

Paperback
by Millar, George
The third of George Millar's masterful sailing and travel narratives to be republished many decades after their original appearance.

Good Little Ship: Arthur Ransome, Nancy Blackett and the Goblin

Paperback
by Willis, Peter

Messing About in Boats

Paperback
by Muir, John R.
Inexplicably out of print since the late 1940s, Messing About in Boats is one of the most charming and evocative accounts of work and leisure afloat in the years either side of the Great War. John Muir describes with humanity and humour the perils of boat acquisition and ownership by the impecunious, and the somewhat mixed talents of the Paid Hand. But his account is more than balanced by the interest and p...
