The minimum boat by Sam Llewellyn
In this collection of humerous tongue in cheek diatribes on subjects as diverse as anchoring, fishing, alcohol and marine sanitation, Sam Llewellyn joyfully turns the clock back to a time of simple pleasures on the water. Shunning in mast furling systems, passionately against the replacement of shrimping nets with walk in freezers and perplexed by sailors who spend more time fixing the hot wter system tha getting their hands on the tiller, Sam Llewellyn seeks to re-allign seafaring priorities that have become bizzare.
Drawn from the hugely popular column in practical boat owner and illustrated with cartoons by the imitable Mike Peyton, these sage and loony meditations will appeal to anyone who has ever baulked fixing the head, but believes that there is nothing, simply nothing so much worth doing as messing about on boats.
