    Default Swin Swale and Swatchway-- book

    If you do any kind of small boat cruising, open-boat and/or shallow draft, this is a funny, apropos book that belongs on your shelf for either winter or berth reading. Throughout the entire book I saw nothing but myself, my misadventures, my mates, and sailing in general. As pertinent in the 21st century as it was in the 19th. If you've been thinking about purchasing this book, just do it. I'm generally a total screw-up in my boat. It's nice to know I'm not alone with my English friend at my side laughing at me. Totally recommended!

    (I will say it makes me long for dependable public transport to the water)

    Thank you.
    I am currently reading O'Brien's From Three Yachts and loving it. His dry irony has me laughing out loud.
