GUEST,Vectis Whaler's Tale: Any History? (18) RE: Whaler's Tale: Any History? 01 Apr 02

I believe that George Scoggins wrote Farewell to Tarwathie.
A lot of scots went whaling in the winter when outdoor work dried up.
The attack on boats by whales were not common but did happen from time to time. One boat was attacked by a large whale off the Greenland coast somewhere and sunk the boat. This story was the basis of the book Moby Dick by all accounts.
