I’ve read Attention All Shipping and was left… well… with the impression that it was a bit hollow. There really isn’t all that much to it other than the premise of visiting the shipping forecast areas.

A far better read, IMHO, in a similar vein, is Nick Thorpe’s book “adrift in Caledonia” in which he hitch hikes around Scotland on various vessels and meets quite a range of people on the way. Well worth a look.

Many thanks. That goes on the list too.
