Comment: Drifting Beneath the "Red Duster". August 19 2010.
Well mate I have just finished the Book and this is my honest opinion of it!
On starting to read I found that your introduction was just great, it gives the insight of what you wanted in life and made for a good start!
Your experiences both on board and ashore in the various ports were excellent, you gave the honest an open way that you lived the years, there are some really spicy parts but this makes it all the more realistic, as we all as Seaman know just what that was all about!
All of your stories may well ring Bells in many an Ear,what with the happy times and the crazy times too! Fights, Police, you name it I am sure most of us went through a bit of that! I know I did anyway, possibly not the same but some very close to what you talk of!
Amazing just how we can recall all the times we had, and its great to read things like this, as it sure does revive the old Brain, and brings back very good memories, be they hostile, Funny or just sheer joy!
I am sure that you will get many sales from this, and I hope that you also get good feedback from whoever reads it!
A great book put together in a way that depicts life as it was, no Bull, no pulling punches just the plain truth!
I will treasure this Book Mort, and only wish that I too could put something like this together!
Good Stuff mate and Congrats on the Publishing!!
