    That's a shame. Amazon.com's database keeps trying to get me  to read that
    one so it's nice to have a review. By the way, if you *really* want  to get your
    review out to the reading public, you can go to amazon.com and  review any
    book, whether you liked it or not.
    
    A couple of books list  readers might enjoy:
    "Falcon on the Baltic" --it's out of copyright and  available online. Not
    much blue water sailing in it but plenty of good nautical  stories. Rather
    similar to Jack London's Snark tale. Light stuff and a pleasure  to read... "mostly
    harmless".
    "Tall Ships Down" by Dan Parrot. The stories of  the sinkings of four tall
    ships in the last half of the 20th century.  Well-written, well-researched, and
    fascinating.
