Fantastic cartoons - exquisitely detailed and highly amusing A topic all boaters and dreamers can relate to Wonderfully humorous text - a perfect bunkside read
John Quirk has been writing for Classic Boat for many months, and his regular column has proved highly popular with readers, not least because of his terrifically detailed and witty cartoons.
'John Quirk's witty illustrations help bring each of the comedic set pieces to life. Very pleasant Sunday afternoon entertainment.' Boat Mart (February 2010) 'Quirkie's got his ramblings into a book, and jolly good it is too...Quirk's essays develop pleasantly with the occasional flash of wit that has you chuckling out loud.' Classic Boat (March 2010) 'wonderfully witty' Sailing - 2010 'Quirk demonstrates a comical and critical approach to the whole business of being involved with boats...Those who love boats should enjoy this book.' Nautical Magazine (June 2010) 'This little book is a great read; maritime, worldly wise, clever, funny. instructive and enjoyable by all generations.' The Little Ship Club (Summer 2010) 'An example of the best British humour. A very "quirky" view of the pleasures of boat building, designing and owning.' Ausmarine (October 2010)
