Knight's classic 'sailor's bible' of 1889 was used by John in We Didn't Mean to Go to Sea, and by Dick in The Picts and the Martyrs
. A hardcopy version of Sailing is now available from The Shellback's Library, price $29.95 ($17.50 soft cover).
I am grateful to Ian Baines not only for the loan of his copy of 'Sailing', but also for proof-reading the scanned text. Dave Sewart also helped by pointing out I had missed a couple of diagrams. Remaining inaccuracies are my responsibility alone.
