Well, that’s it. The book is finished. After my ten minutes of fame on the Jeremy Vine show, his agent contacted me and said he was convinced there was a book in it – if only he could get in the shops before people stopped talking about Lockdown and moved on to the next big thing (Brexit again?)
Anyway, two weeks of sitting in front of a screen for twelve hours a day and it’s done – sent off, out of my hands now.
Tomorrow I shall say goodbye to St Helen’s Pool and move down to St Mary’s where, hopefully, a new pump for the galley will have arrived and I can top up with a few fresh stores and then the forecast looks good for leaving for Porto at the weekend.
Meanwhile, you will find there is a new page on the blog: Cheap Watermaker. I have always wondered why these have to cost £1,000 when the technology has been around for years. It would have been a great comfort when I was down to eleven litres and a few cans of beer.
But now someone is making one for less than £100. You can see it at on the tab above.

Hi John, Well done for getting the book done. I hope publication goes ahead quickly. I look forward to getting a copy. All my writings about our family voyaging were locked away for forty years but once I retired I got down to getting them into book form and using the modern computer based system available now I used Amazon Self Publishing, now known as KDP to offer several books for purchase, either as e-books or Paperback.I offer the link to the page where you can see my results.
Happy, safe sailing
If your book is equally inspiring as your story on Jeremy Vine’s show, it will be a best seller.
Good luck with it.
Hi John, so that’s what you have been doing laying at anchor in St Helen’s Pool?
Watching lack of movement on MarineTraffic 🙂
I have also download Trident on my Kindle but not yet got around to starting it, but will soon.
Best of luck with the book and trip to Porto
Hope you are well
Fabulous to hear about your book
Looking forward to reading your story!
John, what is the new book called if you’re allowed to say. Can one pre-order?
Give us a chance… haven’t even got a publisher yet! But thank you anyway. Rest assured I shall mention it when the time comes.
John, I’ve just started Trident. It starts well, so I’m hooked. Will let you know when I’ve finished it.
Thank you, Steve. One way or another, a review would be nice…
Good luck with the new book John.
