    'Tall Ships Down' is an outgrowth of Parrott's research, framing his inquiries and conclusions for a broad seagoing audience. This book is rich in interest and significance for all mariners. We relive the final voyages, dissecting the circumstances of loss from forensic evidence and the memories of survivors.

    Carefully examined, the evidence shows casualties that have been considered acts of god probably resulted from an ignorance or neglect of age-old practices of seamanship. Cargo loose in holds, hatches unsecured at sea, freeing ports timbered shut, rig and stability changes carried out with insufficient regard to their possible impacts on seaworthiness - these and other factors emerge from Parrott's in-depth analysis as contributing factors.
