Duffers, apart from the flag a truly beautiful photo.

Have you ever read any of the Commander Aubry novels by Patrick O'Brien? They are completely wonderful; fine novels and with such utter command of the nautical boat speak, you'll feel like a seasoned matelot after 100 pages.

'Shiver me timbers', Cuffers, I had forgotten those terrific books which I started to read one after the other but then broke off in another direction for some reason and now I can't quite remember where I stopped. And, yes, I do remember all that non-stop nautical argot which made me feel really qualified even though I didn't understand a word of it! Thanks for the reminder!


Staying ashore is a good thing.

Reading Hornblower was all the seamanship I need.
