    Title: 120 Days at Astrolabe the Rena, the Reef & the Go Canopus
    Author: JUDKINS KEVIN

    It is an up-close and personal account of events. Witnessed, recorded and photographed from the anchor-handling vessel GO Canopus, while undertaking a multitude of duties relating to the salvage operations on location around Astrolabe Reef. The narrative has been liberally interlaced with my own previously unpublished sequential photographs to enhance the reader's appreciation of the events described. To my knowledge, there is no similar comprehensive written or photographic record of the events described herein. "This is a first-hand record of events that took place on and around Astrolabe Reef, as the Rena broke up and the salvage turned into a wreck removal. It is a uniquely well-informed and illustrated book, penned by that rare breed of writer; a man of action who is also a man of letters. Captain Judkins writes with unparalleled authority about the wreck of the Rena because he was there. Furthermore, the insider's perspective he provides on shipboard life is attractive and captivating, as is his ability to describe complicated salvage procedures, in terms that can be grasped by laymen and seafarers alike.
