Shameless Promotion

I've just had an email from my publisher that my new book, "The NEW Get Rid of Boat Odors"-- a major updated, revised and expanded sequel to the original (and waaaay overdue!) is now available in print!

The sailboatowners.com online store is taking orders for signed copies ...they've included the complete Table of Contents in their listing. The New Get Rid of Boat Odors
Amazon should have it in hard copy in a week or two at most, as a kindle by then too...I don't have that link yet. It'll also be available directly from the publisher (Seaworthy Publishing) I'll have that link within 24 hours.

Just thought I'd mention it. Except for copies I take to rendezvous and boat shows, I don't sell it myself...I'm just a proud " new mother" posting a "birth announcement!"

Congrats, Madame HeadMistress: Birthing a book is a big deal!

The TOC is unclear - do you discuss treatment systems such as Raritan's Lectra/San, PuraSan and ElectroScan?

Congratulations Peggie! I've been holding off purchasing your words of wisdom until your new edition came out. Time to pay you back for all of the wisdom you have been freely providing us over the years!

I'd like to trade in my obsolete GRoBO for the new and improved NGRoBO. No stains. Lightly used.

Do I get a credit?

Congrats Peggy!. The book, coupled with the free advice given here, should solve every imaginable problem. It's like buying a book with a warranty.


May I suggest your future advice be in the form of "look on page 59, paragraph 3"

Last year I bought through Amazon "Get Rid of Boat Odors" what was very interesting. Are you planning to sell your new book on the ITunes Store ?

All the best for your new book.

You'll have to ask my publisher, but I don't think so...I didn't know that was posssible!

What a great idea! T'would definitely save me a LOT of time typing!

I'd like to trade in my obsolete GRoBO for the new and improved NGRoBO. No stains. Lightly used. Do I get a credit?

I don't think the publisher is taking trade ins...however, you might want to consider offering it for half price to any dock mate who needs it!

Thanks to all of you for so many kind words! They're really appreciated!

Many people have iPad aboard (I have 2). So an electronic iBook of your precious advices would be great. More convenient for us, more business for you.

I bought Peggy's book several years ago and it is a great reference book. I would recommend it to everyone. Not only for the head system but also the info about treating your fresh water system

The amount of unfounded myths about Type 1 and Type 2 MSD devices is astounding. Most myths are from sheer govt. paranoia or who can tell the most rediculous and yet believable untrue stories. I have not read the new book, but I am certain she has addressed this issue.
It was because of Peggy Hall, that I now have a Purasan unit (Type 1 MSD) and it was the best thing I have ever done to my boat. I cannot believe that I have lived so long without one. Most cruisers will be amazed at where they are legal. For many, that means NO MORE PUMP-OUTS.

Peggy. I wish you the best of success with your new edition.
