    I'd like to read the book. I'll keep an eye open for it.

    Many thanks for those links; I've saved them! I have the book about the Farrells, "Sailing back in time" and it is great reading.

    The sight of that Spray-type boat "Bertie" was interesting too. I have always meant that a gaff-rigged boat could easily be turned into a hybrid junk just by replacing the gaff sail(s) with junk sails. Bertie's rig looks to be working well.

    Thanks for the other links Brian I missed those. I see David beat me to it by 11 months. He has already posted links here...I missed that as well.

    Gary - Some amazing archive footage, thanks. That was part 2 of a 3-part film. Part 1 is here and part 3 here.

    I came across this very nice video clip and thought there would be members and visitors here that would appreciate it.

    (Gary, I edited the link into the text so it's a bit easier to use - hope you don't mind. Brian.)
