RE: My 3 favorite books about boats that I have read more than once are......

When first investigating the Kindle, I downloaded "Kindle for Mac" to my laptop. It is awesome and it's free. It's also available for PCs. Since then, we did buy my wife the newest Kindle, and she won't leave it alone.

As you can imagine, the laptop version isn't as convenient, mostly due to size and glare, but is a nice way to see how you feel about electronic reading. I do intend to buy a Kindle for myself, as it's much nicer on an airplane, or in the airport.

Got another book to add.Rowing to Latitude
Jill Fredston
Jill and her husband rowed unbelievable distances and places. All the way from Great slave lake in Canada to Kotzebue Alaska, Seattle to Skagway, all the Norway coast and many more trips. They used modified 2 place Kayaks. One boat for each of them. They rowed in many places most of us would'nt go w our trawlers.

Found another book.

Seven Seas on a Shoe-String
Dwight Long

I hope I'm not duping but it's another true story by the skipper, a young fellow in the 30s. Very good.
