We're running out of favorite authors!

In our two years aboard, we've gone through Dick Francis, Stuart Woods, Robert B Parker, Lawrence Block and a few more I can't think of just now,. I've also exhausted the brain candy authors: Lilian Jackson Braun, Christopher Harris, and Christopher Buckley, Carl Hiaason and Dave Barry.

Who do you read when you're not on watch? What's your favorite sipping wine at anchor reading?

Where are the best used book stores along the east coast?

Recently I've been enjoying the Italian author Andrea Camilleri. He writes a series featuring a Sicilian police detective. I am also starting at the beginning of Dorothy L. Sayer's Lord Peter Wimsey series.

As for wine, I'm partial to anything from Spain, Portugal and a select few reds from Greece.

I just read Jeffery Archer's "Paths of Glory," a fictional story based on the life of George Mallory of Mount Everest fame. While this is not one of Archer's best books, it is still very good, Generally speaking, anything by Jeffery Archer is excellent. He keeps you on the edge of your seat from the first page until the last. He is a master of suspense. In one novel, "First among Equals," you literally don't know how the story ends until the very last word. Other novels by Archer are "Kane and Abel" "The Prodigal Daughter" "A Matter of Honor" think that Archer is one of the best English language writers writing today.
I simply must add that anything by Ken Follett should be on everyone's must read list. "Lie Down with Lions" is excellent and set in Afghanistan during the Russian occupation. "A Dangerous Fortune" is an intriguing story involving the privileged English class of the late 1800's. Like Archer about whom I commented earlier, Follett's stories are characterized by incredible plot turns and peopled with real people.
anything by clive cussler---is sea related and mysterious but with a touch of comedy and makes fun of the classic mysteries lol
i sleep while not on watch--read any mysteries i havent yet read--i think i have most of them covered--love lee child, nelson demille, kathy reichs, clive cussler,m of course ..lol....many others----and many times i merely read the insides of my eyelids..lol....
wine?? when at anchor--i usually drink water..lol......is the best wine i know of..lol
Just finished Fool by Christopher Moore. I think it's one of his best. Laugh out loud. He's a great break from the Robert Crais and T Jefferson Parker and John Sandford that I've been reading.

"Sam, since I too have a similar noise I'm thinking about how to isolate whatever it may be that's causing it. Have you tried turning the thruster battery off? Turning off the engine battery which should shut off the windlass? I'd try…"

Beneteau 43 two cabin slip covers

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions.  If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker.  We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier.  The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More

"Sadly, no. I have inspected every piece of known equipment. Every radio, handheld, etc. Thanks for the ideas though. I am very receptive to all ! Truly baffling. Sam"
