Book Reviews


TOTAL LOSS (2nd Edition) by Jack Coote, revised by Paul Gelder. Adlard Coles Nautical, ISBN 0-7136-5836-3, 14.99 pb.

First published in 1985 Total Loss has been reprinted eight times and is already a classic. The new second edition has been expanded with over 20 additional accounts of yachts being lost and the lessons learned. Both monohull and multihull losses provide the reader with a book which is hard to put down as a series of short adventures. Each story stimulates the mind of the safety conscious reader to identify the shortfalls in his/her own yachts equipment, location of safety gear and preparedness to deal with the unexpected hazards.

Not all reports are from yachts lost many miles from land. Indeed losses occurred even in harbour, and the preservation of life even there owed more to luck than preparation in some cases. Read the book, learn, and avoid the same mistakes.

Multihull stories include Team Phillips, Gulf Streamer and Livery Dole as well as the rare events of a Catalac (modified) and John Passmores Heavenly Twins capsizing. Dont miss this book.

YACHTING WORLD'S DOGWATCH
by John Passmore. 84pps £5.99 (pb) ISBN 0- 7136-5041-0. Adlard Coles Nautical

This masterpiece of nautical humour is actually a series of articles reproduced from the Yachting World Magazine. The author tells of his "new" life with a partner who brings her dog to join him aboard a Heavenly Twins catamaran for some slow cruising around the British Isles, and bears him two sons. Anyone with dogs will relate to "Blue" and his muddy paws and twenty four hour bladder. Anyone who has tied up within view of "Joe Public", or put to sea will read their own experiences in the book. My only complaint was that I reached the end too quickly. A great little book to pick up and put down for some light relief. DM
