What my customers say

“Hi Andrew, Your books have arrived safely. They are truly wonderful. My son and his Dad were recently at the Boat Festival and my son spotted your
lovely books. He ordered them as a birthday gift for his dad who grew up with boats around Tassie. They are really beautiful books…..a gift from you to the boating world. And a gift of Tasmanian life.”
