Former Cornish fisherman Paul Greenwood vividly describes life as a young crewman aboard the Looe lugger Iris in the 1960s. His frank account of the hardships he encountered at sea in "Once Aboard a Cornish Lugger", overcoming sea-sickness, fatigue, cold and wet while working by day and night hauling nets and lines is a brilliant evocation of a bygone age that contrasts with modern conditions in the fishing industry. This illustrated account pays tribute to the crewmen he left behind.
