Abe Books would be the right direction. There's a copy currently listed there for $50.

I also have had trouble finding this book. Luckily a local cruiser who swallowed the hook was kind enough to give me his. It is the first edition, but happy to have it anyway.

I've been all over their website. i guess just asking Mr Van Sant if he'll sell a copy couldn't hurt.

And yes any copy of this treasure seems hard to come by. I guess ill have company on the voyage.
