"The internal cohesion in the work is provided by sometimes raw and powerful, sometimes ethereal and lonely black and white photographs. They are superb. Collectively, the warriors, seascapes, famous and infamous maritime locations, and the carefully chosen text create a nostalgic mood of awe and respect. This is a wonderful book to peruse, reflect and enjoy it’s precious moments of passion and pride."
Journalist for The Read, Mercury Newspaper
"We wanted a maritime themed cover for this issue (No 75) of Tasmania 40 Degrees South to honour the wooden boat festival… Given that the book (Old Sea Dogs of Tasmania) contains some of the most beautiful maritime-themed images we have seen, we asked Andrew if we might use one for the cover of Issue 75 and use a lot more as a Portfolio spread in Issue 76."
