A Tramp for all Oceans

Introducing a book of the sea and ships by Geoffrey Walker

From many decades based in Asia, the Author tells his sailors anecdotes of the adventurous years he spent tramping the sea routes of Africa, India, the Far East, and Oceania, under the Red Duster, from Apprentice to Captain. Calling at large and small Ports alike, some little more than clearings in the jungle, up barely navigable rivers or not even marked on an Admiralty Chart.

The Book captivates the last of an era when ships all possessed their own “heart and character” when crewed by what may be described as a “different breed” of seafarer, and which now only lives on in maritime nostalgia.
