    Thoroughly enjoyed this second book as much as the first Extremely well written and knowledgeable author The book is both exciting, informative and descriptive I did think that good luck followed him and got him out of many life threatening situations he got himself into, then tried justifying what happened Never the less, I found the book gripping and look forward to the next.


  2. Vivien Ogden Vivien Ogden says:

    Loved this book, as I did the authors first adventure Across Islands and Seas. The book is on the same par as Thor Hyadel and Kontiki, Slocum and Spray, and Les Powles with Solitaire he did have an engine, it didn t work Perhaps motor less sailing should be the next extreme sport
