Reviews: 6
Captain Tew spins an entertaining and technically fascinating tale describing some of his adventures as a salvage captain. I had a chance to meet him on holiday in Curacao, and the joy is that he puts into his writing the same story-telling skill he presents in person! Add the many photos in this book, and it makes for an entralling read. I gave several copies of this book as Christmas gifts, and got very positive feedback from my friends. I bought Captain Tew's other book, "Sailing in Grandfather's Wake", a description of his sail around the world in a small boat, and found it to also be interesting and fun to read.
very interesting storey
Captain Tew has written an engaging account of his salvage experiences in Asia.. Mostly dealing with strandings, tows, and fires, he describes the challenges of modern salvage in a style appealing to both the layman and the professional. The book has many good color photographs, maps and a few diagrams, and is a valuable contribution to the genre. As a former salvage diver who has read most books on the subject, it's a better book than I expected!
I thought this was a very informative book on salvage a good read and a big book, so I highly recommend it
This book is a fabulous script of the efforts of one man and his salvage team.
