This one is full of information that will be of interest to more than sailor's.. Has a lot of information on every basic task that a sailor aboard a ship should have a good working knowledge of .. I have a 1940 hard copy and anyone interested in how to handle lines should pay attention to the Marlin spike sections..
Given the media intensity given to the Corona or Wuhan virus, there seems no reason to have posts on that very specific subject in several forums Accordingly, all of those posts will be moved to "Headlines". All new items on that subject should be posted there as well. This notice will expire on 1 April, or be extended if needed. Thanks, folks.
