Summary

Summary

Many books have been written about safety at sea, collision avoidance and safe boating, but how many of them can tell you how to avoid sea-monsters? In this little reference book, Chris Hillier takes a lighthearted look at over one hundred of the myths and superstitions surrounding life afloat.

Fascinating information is given on the origin and history of each entry, including sightings of the Flying Dutchman, the 'albatross' responsible for the Titanic disaster, and many more.
