A fascinating book by Ray Stanfield

The publisher says that this book has been a long time in the preparation – longer indeed than we expected – because people kept coming up with more and more interesting photographs for us to include. We have drone pictures of wrecks hidden in secluded coves, underwater photographs of boats lying on the seabed and several of rescues in progress. Unsurprisingly, pictures of wrecks are not particularly common – after all if your vessel is sinking beneath you you have better things to do than pose for a selfie – but we’ve gathered together a remarkable collection. And not all the boats featured were truly wrecked. There was no saving Eileen, which hit rocks at Creg Malin, Peel, on the opposite side of the bay from the castle, but many of the boats featured in the book were raised, repaired and refloated.
