Book profits go to RNLI


Local charter boat skipper Paul Whittall called around to Weymouth RNLI lifeboat station on Tuesday 13th October 2020 to hand over a cheque for £350 to RNLI Coxswain Andy Sargent and deputy 2nd Coxswain Lyle Stantiford from the profits of selling his book ‘Army Brat to Seadog’,
Published by Amazon, it tells the story of his life from being a child of an army father, moving around the world, to becoming the skipper of the charter boat ‘Offshore Rebel’.
Also incorporated in the book are tales/stories and memories shared on a Face Book page ‘Sea-dog Tall Tales’ set up for the anglers & fisherman whilst the country was in lockdown.
Following the huge amount of tall tales, stories and anecdotes that have been posted on the Face Book page he plans to write another book, as yet untitled, which will also be available from Amazon.
Paul said on Sea-dog Tall Tails, “All contributors will of course be named and credited with their work. There’s still time to submit a Tall Tale, either direct to the Facebook page or to me (
Thanks everyone for your efforts and be sure that the proceeds from the new book, YOUR book, will go to the RNLI.”
The New book will be published through Amazon, where, if you haven’t already got it, the first book can still be purchased.
