Product Description

All at Sea describes the career of a ship captain and salvage master from the time when he joined his first vessel to his present status as a marine consultant in Hong Kong. He writes of the remarkable changes he has seen and experienced in a career which has spanned more than half a century. By turns amusing and thought-provoking, this is an enjoyable tale of a most interesting life. *** “Much of what Alan describes is now part of the past, whether that be the Royal Fleet Auxiliary in large part itself, life around and aboard the inefficient but interesting ‘tweendeck cargo vessels in which he explored much of the Western Pacific, or the occasional eccentricity of marine operations before modern risk assessments. ... [He] has done readers a service by putting on record so many of his experiences in such a charming & accessible manner. ... those who are interested in recent maritime practice should ... find within its pages much to intrigue & delight them. / Alan Loynd joined the Swire Group in 1976, and worked for businesses within it for most of thirty years.... it is both an honour and a pleasure to commend this volume to almost any curious & enthusiastic reader.” – Barnaby Swire. Chairman, the Swire Group
