East Coast Pilot: Lowestoft to Ramsgate
Saturday, 21 June 2008 10:35

Author: Colin Jarman, Garth Cooper and Dick Holness
Publisher: Imray Laurie Norie & Wilson

From Baird Maritime:

In this case the East Coast means the east coast of the southern part of England. It is a very popular leisure boating area that is dotted with commercial ports, naval bases and fishing harbours.

Describing a rather quaint, fascinating and pleasant part of the world, this is the second edition of the book and it has obviously been a labour of love on the part of its three very enthusiastic and competent authors.

Produced in the usual clear, practical and no-nonsense style of all the Imray Laurie Norie pilots, it is another of the group published in association with The Cruising Association.

A mouth watering guide to a picturesque and fascinating part of the world.

Fathoming the Ocean: The Discovery and Exploration of the Deep Sea
Saturday, 21 June 2008 10:35

Author: Helen M. Rozwadowski
Publisher: Belknap Press of Harvard University Press, USA and Inbooks, Australia.

From Baird Maritime:

WARNING: Do not be put off this book by the fact that the Foreword is by enviro extremist Sylvia Earle. The remainder of the book is sound, useful and informative.

A history of oceanography, it has, nevertheless, considerable contemporary relevance. The author has done a brilliant job of bringing what can be a dull subject to life.

A rare combination of historian and scientist, the author manages to bring together the best and most important of both worlds in this very valuable work. She captures very well the hard slog of science which is so often ignored.

Inland Waterways of Germany
Monday, 19 May 2008 15:08

Author: Barry Sheffield
Publisher: Imray Laurie Norie & Wilson

From Baird Maritime:

An inspiration to anyone interested in ways to save our planet. The Germans, while blessed with a mighty river system, have fully utilised it and enhanced it with canals.

This enables them to very effectively get cargoes off the roads. Marine transport is infinitely more cost effective and environmentally sound than its land confined competitor.

As a delightful by-product of this wonderful national asset, the Germans can enjoy very extensive cruising of their inland waters. This activity can, remarkably, be conducted in quite large vessels.

This well presented book gives a very clear description of Germany’s extensive inland waterway network. It also gives good sound advice on how to transit that system safely and enjoyably.

Valuable.
