REVIEWS for Salvage in my Sarong
Once in a while a book comes to you that changes things, alters your perspective and inspires you. ‘Salvage in my Sarong’ is one of those books. Kinda has written yet another great sailing story with clarity, honesty and humour. Coupled with her own drawings and photos, this is a must read for anyone, not just sailors. Congratulations on another great read Linda!

After Sailing in My Sarong, following the peaks and troughs of Linda and Bill’s 30-year dream of sailing around the world, we were looking forward to reading about their next adventure. It’s unusual for sailors to down-size, it’s unfathomable that seasoned boaters would purchase a boat that needs a lot of work (knowing how hard it is!), and it is completely bizarre to buy a boat un-seen from the OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD!
But is it unfathomable and bizarre or is it free-spirited and adventuresome?
Well, it couldn’t be anything less for Linda and Bill (or should I say Captain Underpants!).
This story has spirit, adventure, escapade, and drama slathered all over it – and that’s just the beginning.
Several metres shorter than their last boat they sail Lati from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean. From tipping dinghies to exploding gearboxes this stalwart couple surge forth through the internet, across the Atlantic to live their dream of Mediterranean cuisine and European chic.
They may have rescued Lati, but that little boat helped them fulfil a life-long dream. And in a Sarong at that!

I loved reading both of your books, your way of writing is great, very descriptive. I can almost see in front of me what you are describing. It is also entertaining. I kept reading, finished both books in a few days. I loved all the photos as well.

I found Linda Frylink Andersons book “Salvage in my Sarong” a fascinating story, and simply a book I couldn’t put down. It’s the story about how Linda and her husband Bill transformed an old plywood sailing boat “Lati” into a seaworthy vessel and sailed it across the Atlantic and through the Mediterranean sea. A must for anyone even contemplating such a venture but also a good read for all of us with dreams and an adventurous spirit. It’s very well illustrated with photos and also Lindas paintings, sketches and pastels in her own, unique style, capturing the very essence of her changing surroundings.
She writes not only about beautiful experiences and difficult hardships but also about unexpected warm encounters and friendships with people along the way.
I just wanted the story to go on for ever....

When storms threaten, nothing to do but curl up with a good book. ‘Salvage in My Sarong, The Mediterranean Dream in a rescued boat’, is an interesting easy read of two people's adventure when they bought a VERY rundown boat they had never seen. Linda Frylink Anderson the author, compliments her stories with her beautiful art and photos. I'm not a person who knows anything about sailing but I like this book for its human touch and connection with different people and cultures. And how easy it is to immerse myself in their adventures!

Sunday bliss!! Finally sitting down to read Mum's Linda Frylink Anderson second self-published book "Salvage in My Sarong". I'm so proud of my parents, they have had adventures most people will only ever dream about. I love reading Mum's words, she writes with such openness and honesty, which is the way she lives her life.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, with dozens of stunning photos. Makes me (almost) want to buy an abandoned boat on eBay sight unseen, do it up and follow the footsteps of Linda and her Captain Underpants!! Did I say "almost"?
Enjoyable read whether you are a sailor or not!
