Same day I found my willing griffin book I found two others in a different antiques place, both by bobroberts.
Just finished this one and its excellent. Two young men set off on their 27ft gaff cutter, across biscay to gib, then across the atlantic to central america, thro the canal and into the pacific where they aare shipwrecked on cocos keeling.
Thoroughly well told tale ( he chucked up a fleet street reporters career to do do this) filled with interesting and disreputable characters Who could come out of a hemingway book.
