Used Sailboat Buyer Beware

RRP $12.99

You can learn a great deal from others experiences. As my husband and I went through our sailboat buying experience I documented every step of our long and often times, frustrating journey. Tim has over 25 years experience as a commercial crab fisherman and journeyman ship fitter and I have a talent for researching and investigation from my former career as a real estate agent. Due to our back grounds in vessels and in sales, we think we have collected some very helpful information that you may never hear from the average sailboat buyer, or seller. In this book you will discover where we found much of our information and many other things we did along the way to successfully make our dream a reality. You will learn a little known purchasing strategy that could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. You will also discover how to contact the seller directly on any vessel you look at, a few creative ways of finding good deals if you are interested in a project boat, how to thoroughly inspect a vessel to locate major issues before you hire a surveyor, and much more! Our experiences were not always pleasant but we persevered and now we are living our dream. This little book is a small investment that could give you the winning edge as you look for and buy your vessel.


Three Men In A Boat / Three Men On A Bummel

RRP $6.95

Three Men in a Boat :

There are four of them - George, Harris, the writer himself and that dog, Montmorency - all participants in a boating expedition on the Thames. The difficulties and vicissitudes heaped upon these innocents develop to epic proportions as they experience the hazards of the great English waterway.

Their problems are in no way diminished by the outrageous behaviour of Montmorency, who lays waste several riverside communities in the course of their journey.

Three Men on the Bummel :

'What is a "bummel"?' said George. 'How would you translate it?' 'A "bummel",' I explained, 'I should describe as a journey, long or short, without an end; the only thing regulating it being the necessity of getting back within a given time to the point from which one started . . . '

After considerable indecision the bummel takes our heroes to Germany's Black Forest where they manage to disrupt the tranquil way of life usually enjoyed by the denizens, whose curious behaviour they closely observe and record in their account of this second epic journey. Even without that dog, chaos and mayhem reign supreme.

Three Men In A Boat And Three Men On The Bummel

`Other works may excel this in depth of thought and knowledge of human nature: other books may rival it in originality and size; but, for hopeless and incurable vivacity, nothing yet discovered can surpass it.' (Jerome, Preface to Three Men in a Boat). Three Men in a Boat describes a comic expedition by middle-class Victorians up the Thames to Oxford. It provides brilliant snap-shots of London's playground in the late 1880s, where the fashionable steam-launches of river swells encounter the hired skiffs of city clerks. The medley of social vignettes, farcical incidents, descriptions of river fashions, and reflections on the Thames's history, is interspersed with humorous anecdotes told by a natural raconteur. Three Men on the Bummel records a similar escapade, a break from the claustrophobia of suburban life some ten years later; their cycling tour in the Black Forest, at the height of the new bicycling craze, affords Jerome the opportunity for a light-hearted scrutiny of German social customs at a time of increasing general interest in a country that he loved. This account of middle-aged Englishmen abroad is spiced with typical Jeromian humour.

Three Men In A Boat

RRP $18.99

The story begins by introducing George, Harris, Jerome and Montmorency, a fox terrier. The men are spending an evening in J.'s room, smoking and discussing illnesses they fancy they suffer from. They conclude they are all suffering from 'overwork' and need a holiday. A stay in the country and a sea trip are both considered, then rejected after J. describes the bad experiences had by his brother-in-law and a friend on sea trips. The three decide on a boating holiday up the River Thames, from Kingston upon Thames to Oxford, during which they will camp, notwithstanding Jerome's anecdotes about previous experiences with tents and camping stoves...
