Re: First Sailing / Sea Book You Ever Read ?
Thor Heyerdahl's Kon Tiki about 1951/52 the same year the film came out. I saw the film and was given the book for Xmas. As I was in NZ it may well have been 1952 as we always were a few months behind in getting films.
When I was a boy my momma would send me down to the corner store with $1 and I would come back with 5 potatoes, 2 loaves of bread, 3 bottles of milk, a hunk of cheese, a box of tea and 6 eggs. Can't do that now, too many f**kn security cameras.
