Master of Errol Flynn's Yacht Zaca Captain Patrick C. Cother

02 Jun

Ahoy all Zaca lovers

At last, Bonnie Cother is back from her visit to the UK and I have just now been in touch.

The ordering particulars are these:

The book is $29 (USD) and for the USA, shipping and handling is $5. Please check with her if you are outside USA.

No credit card or personal checks. A money order or the equivalent and to please make the check out to Veronica Cother-Bentley and send your order to the address below.

The Post Office informs her that shipping usually takes between 5 and 6 days.

If you want it sooner that can be arranged also but you must contact her for a different price…
Veronica Cother-Bentley
P.O. Box 7621
Winter Haven, FL 33883

To refresh your memory:

She has said: “my father was the Master/Captain of Zaca during 56/57……….. the journal is full of photos of EF and family, copies of original letters to and from EF……..log book entrants……….. telegrams, and information dad has typed re meeting with EF.”

(Bonnie has further related this most interesting tidbit- that her father and Errol Flynn had MUCH common- not the least of which … a shared birthday!)

I am REALLY looking forward to this book as it is another unusual (and to date, unknown) witness to events that has come forward- albeit indirectly. In fact, had Ms Cother not gone through her fathers' things, discovered this treasure trove of Flynn stuff (and, in many cases VERY fragile items at that) and TAKEN THE TIME OFF to do loving justice to the assemblage of it all … I shudder to think of the alternative! Afterall, think of the almost fate of the Zaca itself!

Best- Karl

    Ahoy all!
    I have received further info on the book and it's ordering.
    The book is over 170 pages in length with 75 photographs!
    And, in the matter of payment, a simple postal money order will do very nicely.
    Best- Karl

    Can I use my merchant account to pay for the book? There's no way I can send a check. What if I don't get the book?

    Dear Johanna
    If you live in the states, the book is $29.00 plus post and packaging $5.00. A money order drawn on a US bank is fine, Bank of America is my local bank. And/or a post office money order, made out to Veronica Cother Bentley.
    I send the books with a delivery confirmation receipt. I have had no complaints thus far. I will send by return of mail upon receipt of money order.
    I am setting up a paypal account by this weekend if you prefer to go that way.
    I live in Central Florida.
