Author explores the world of boats
A JOURNALIST, broadcaster and author from Lover has released a new book about pilot cutter boats.
Pilot Cutters Under Sail, Pilots and Pilotage in Britain and Northern Europe by Tom Cunliffe has been published by Pen and Sword Books.
Cunliffe, the author of a number of books about the sea, recently presented the BBC series The Boats That Built Britain.
He has sailed more miles aboard original and replica cutters than almost anyone alive, having voyaged the Atlantic from Brazil to the Arctic and from the Caribbean to Russia.
His new book describes the ships themselves, as well as their masters and crews and the skills they needed for the competitive and dangerous work of pilotage.
