    I thoroughly enjoyed reading Life Boat. It is extremely well written and a rollicking good yarn filled with adventure, amusing stories and beautiful descriptions of that part of the world. I really admire how much love and respect Mark and his lovely first mate Karen have for both the Sea and the Arab. I didn't want the adventure to end and look forward to reading about the next one!

    An incredible story , filled with adventure and wit. The characters he meets along the way only enhance the story , until you learn that the greatest character of all was the author himself. I hope this is the start of a collection of books from him, as he will surely be a success ! Sincerely, Mrs. R.V. York

    Once begun, I didn't want to put the book down. The engaging story and the author's conversational but very literary style made for a most satisfying read. I felt I was on board as captain Mark and his lovely first mate Karen struggled with difficult autumn sailing on the south coast of England, crossed the Channel to France, through the French canal system then on in to the Mediterranean. Lively anecdotes, occasional moments of terror, and the couples mastery of the steep learning curve required of offshore sailors left me in awe of their resourcefulness and persistence. Hats off to both Mark and Karen for their voyage and the ensuing book. "Life Boat" is indeed a great read!

    A really enjoyable account of Mark and Karens journey on Arab, the old Cornish Lifeboat. Mark is a very good writer with lots of humour, and his account of their travels is described so vividly It is a story you will want to keep on reading. Carol, Cornwall.
