I will certainly get this book. Over half the ships I sailed in were built by Caledon, including my first one the Achilles, and the one I rate as the best ship I ever sailed in, the Ivernia, which I joined in the yard and went on sea trials,and then onto the Liverpool -New York run. She was a beaut, as were all Caledon ships.
Regards,
Pat
