Changes made during the March 2005 site refit:

New Lyrics

The section on pilot verses now contains the full lyrics to Wadham's Song.

New Books

One of the best and most important works on shanties has been re-released: Songs of the Sailor and Lumberman by William M. Doerflinger. The sections on Tall Ships and Traditional Sail have also been updated with a few select references of interest to those who sail (or want to) on traditionally-rigged boats.

New CDs


Other changes include a general cleanup of the code and the introduction of this page. Most of the lyrics now have links to CDs where the song is recorded.
