    Hi. This is my first post - I hope this thread falls within the guidelines of the forum. I have managed to acquire 6 "new" copies of Dhow's to Delta's by Sonny Levi (2nd Edition). They are all unopened & unread in perfect condition.
    I should also be getting a few copies of Milestones in my Designs over the coming weeks as well. I'm not really sure what the best way of advertising them is - most bookstores seem to have them listed at silly money - so for the time being I've put one on ebay with the start price as per the cover price. I'm more than happy to post them anywhere in the world.

    Kind Regards

    I have a copy of Dhows to Delta's that my father bought as a young lad. One of my favourite books

    Just been looking at the dhows to Deltas book on ebay, jeeees 99 quid ??.
    I have'nt seen sonny for a few years now. He used to have an Indian built Ketch just behind me. He would come on board for a cup of tea occasionaly.

    I remember talking for hours on power boats. One day he said he could lend me a book on the subject , so I said 'Oh yeah thats great', like you do!!!. as I read the book and saw the Photo's I realised that it was him in the photo's.
    He is a very modest man and cant be doing with all the fuss.

    Come to think about it his ketch is still behind me right now --with a new owner now though.
