All, I totally enjoyed "Looking for a Ship" I read it several years ago, bought a few additional copies as give aways, gave one to my father inlaw which I got back several years after that with the names of two or three other peeps he had leant it to. I recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in the seafarers' life in the days of freighters and union hall hiring - a great read. I still have at least one copy left I (maybe 2) thanks for dredging up this old memory of a great read. Am thinking maybe I should read it again.
