2.0 out of 5 stars Northwest Passage Solo, 22 April 2004
This review is from: Northwest Passage Solo (Hardcover)
What he did was a terrific achievement and if you are interested in small boats and adventure then you must read it.
That said I think David Scott Cowper must have had a personality bypass because the book is devoid of any information that would let you get closer to what drives the man. Even the amusing moments sound contrived and not very amusing. However I think it was ghost written so the ghost may be the problem, but at one point, if my memory serves, he crosses the atlantic in a page and a half, you'd think that even a krill would find more to write of an Atlantic crossing than that.
When last heard of DSC was going around again in a rather flash specially built craft, but there's no Internet presence and even his local paper had dropped mentions of him last time I looked. Perhaps he's of the old school, doing it only for himself, but since he looks for sponsorship one would think a web site and updates would be a minimum to keep that cash rolling in.
As a traditional lifeboat fan, ( the ex. RNLB Mabel E Holland was David Scott Cowpers chariot of choice), I found interest in it and in what he had achieved, but I don't think the most generous of reviewers would call it a riveting read.
