    By the way, have you ever thought of updating it with additional new cases and publishing a new edition? Itís a jolly good book.
    I'm somewhat biased but I also think Total Loss is a jolly good book.

    Adlard Coles thought so too and, some 15 years after it was first published, they asked Paul Gelder to do a second edition (2001) updated with about 20 new stories... (of what happened to lots of other poor sods' sunken boats).

    Sorry to come to the party so late, been away in France. I never met Frank, but my father, Gerald Dunn, had dealings with him in the mid 70s, as Frank had offered to tank-test my father's mini-sextant invention, the Cruiserfix, on a voyage from Bradwell to Norway and back. Frank would use traditional celestial navigation, and his then 16-year-old son, the late lamented Paddy Mulville, would use the Cruiserfix. I recall stories that it was cloudy for the whole voyage, and a washout for both methods.
