Art Tirrell | 5 comments I've just come aboard and glad to find you all. I'm an author and also a fan of seagoing fiction. I've actually read the raw text of "The Autobiography of a Seaman", Admiral Lord Cochrane's autobiography - which I'm sure everyone knows formed the basis for the Hornblower series. Beleive me, it was heavy going! I'm also a big fan of Dewey Lambdin's Alan Lewrie series. Has anyone read any of this series?

Debbie Moorhouse Hi!

No, I'm not familiar with Alan Lewrie. How about adding some books to the group shelves for us all to take a peek at?

Art Tirrell | 5 comments Love to. How does it work?
Hey, anybody read about the schooner they just found in Lake Ontario? Sunk 1858 in 250 feet of water off Sodus Bay. Guy from Rochester NY found it using side scan sonar. I blogged it earlier tonight at http://www.kunati.com/art-tirrells-bl... and the complete article is at: http://www.whec.com/article/stories/S...

Art Tirrell | 5 comments Thanks! I posted a Goodreads segment from the historical (also a seagoing novel) currently under consideration by my publisher. How about taking a look and letting me know what you think?

Debbie Moorhouse Scroll down to the group's books, and click "add books". I find it easiest to enter the ISBN, search on that, and then below the book description you'll see "add to Armchair Sailors". Click that, then follow the on-screen instructions :).

1858! It'll almost be a time capsule.
