- Odds are that it was a virus at some point. Maybe some AV stripped it of it's maliciousness at some point and left behind the shell.

I have no such firewall, plus I have a Virtual Machine I use as a sandbox for this stuff, so I downloaded the file. This file wasn't dangerous, but it wasn't piracy either.
This was a 1.5 megabyte PDF consisting of 1,911 blank pages. It was not, as claimed, an electronic copy of BWOAM, it was nothing.
I'm hoping the relative paucity of Internet piracy of this material doesn't indicate a lack of demand.
The original "Instant Boats" with the Teal is gone, too. "Build the New Instant Boats" and "Boatbuilding With Dynamite Payson" are still there.

That's really weird -- it's not there now. I have it in my Kindle account, and it used to be available by Kindle, but it's not there now.
It got removed about a year or so back.
I have it on my kindle also.
