Book Missing: Tall Ship Down by Daniel Parrott
There is this great book that all serious sailors should read, Tall Ship Down by Daniel Parrott. I have loaned it to a number of people at KYC who returned the book to me. But now I can not find it and wonder if I loaned it to someone and have forgotten who it is. Problem with old age. If anyone has it please let me know. Thanks. Peter Girard
