In case some of you have not been following progress on this book, or missed the emails about how to express interest/get in the queue ....
David Henshall (aka Dougal) has been working on this book, collecting stories and photographs, and interviewing 505 sailors, for years. He previously put together books on the Contender and the Merlin Rocket. From what I have heard, this book will not only have the definitive history of the 505 class but will tell the early stories, have the photographs, and more.
David is trying to determine the level of interest so he can figure out how many copies to print (both the Contender and Merlin Rocket books had to go into second printings, and was not as cost effective as one larger printing).
If you are interested in this book (and if you currently race 505s, or ever did, you want one), email David to tell him you are interested.
simply stating that you are interested in a copy of the 505 book (or two or three ... your crew needs a Christmas present).
