Marine Pilot
Author: John Foot
ISBN: 0 86025 922 6
£12.95

The story of a seaman who, after gaining his maritime qualifications, became a Thames Pilot, navigating vessles into the river anchorages from the Pool, via Tilbury, to Thanet and beyond.

He tells stories of voyaging to foreign parts, and of risking his life in home waters; of ships aground and of vessels in distress; of adventures in retirement and of taking up painting - many pictures from that hobby illustrate these pages.
