This, as the author says, completes the picture and makes it into a poignant whole.This is not just about Hull fishermen. What happens in this book applies to all fishermen wherever they are in the world. .Fascinating Story, Dave Buckley, Trawler Historian, Fleetwood Weekly News.Sea Stories by the same author: The Under Manager and The Devils Register Both available on Smashwords.
