Re: Article on the Atkins
- I was so impressed with the article, I wanted to know more about the
Atkins. One of the books mentioned in the article is "The book of
Boats." Well I got MY copy in the mail today !!!! What a Christmas
present.. I ordered the combined version of the "First Book of Boats"
and the "Second Book of Boats." EXCELLENT !!! Easy to find at my
favorite online bookstore. A GREAT $35.00 present to myself..

- Good for you Scott! That's a good book. But to really learn more about
Billy Atkin, anyway, you should read Of Yachts and Men, his reminiscence.
It's still in print in a reprint, and if you go to my, so far rudimentary,
Books page you can buy it there and Amazon will give me a kick-back. :o)
