Editorial Reviews

Classic Boat
If there ever was anything saltier than a salted herring, it must be Tristan Jones.
Yachting Monthly
Wonderful anecdotes and hilarious sea shanties make this book a highly entertaining read.
Sailing
His characters are unforgettable and the stories hilarious. It makes a good read.
Coastal Cruising
His characters are unforgettable and the stories hilarious. It makes a good read.
Cruising
Take a large pinch of salt with these imaginative anecdotes and enjoy the antics of a professional quaysider with the ability to combine the many facets of people he really meets to create outrageous "fictional" characters. This is not the world of white ducks and corporate hospitality, but rather the scene of sunlit jetties and make-do and mend. Perhaps most of us indulge in that style of boating, so Mr. Jones' yarns will strike a sympathetic chord, for he catches the mood exactly.
