Ian Johnston returns with The Shank Revisited, a wholly updated version of his original ‘Rutter for Anchorages in South West Tasmania.‘ This highly popular publication is a must for anyone considering cruising to Tasmania’s wild south west coast.

At 300 pages, The Shank Revisited has been increased by over 100 pages of additional written and photographic content, far and away exceeding the original best selling edition.

‘The first edition of The Shank was as remarkable and original in its publication as its author. The composition of its content with its stunning photography and adventurous dialogue can only be exceeded by this second edition. Rarely visited or explored this edition may be your only opportunity to understand the true remoteness and the natural rugged beauty of the South West Coast of Tasmania.’ – RICHARD TAYLOR, COMMODORE, CRUISING YACHT CLUB OF TASMANIA

“Ian Johnston’s “The Shank” is a ‘must have’ for any seafarers sailing the south and west coast of Tasmania. It’s information regarding anchorages and points of interest is outstanding.” Pieter van der Woude, Port Davey tourist operator and ex-commercial abalone diver of 25 years.

“Ian Johnston has been navigating the oceans for more years than he’ll care to admit. He has a penchant for the wild places where few people go, and in The Shank he describes some of the wildest. It’s a rutter that you’ll want to have with you, if you and your crew choose to go where the wild things are.” – Paul Cullen, Director, Australian Antarctic Festival
