"I have this DVD set. The Voyage of the Brigantine Yankee is NOT on it. To the best of my knowledge the "Voyage" has NEVER been re-released since 1966. Perhaps someone from NGS could enlighten us if this is incorrect? I did see a mint…"
Just wanted to be sure you didn't overlook page 2 of this blog. Be sure to check the link provided by Tom Olin (page 2), on his superb documentation of his Grandfather on his newly created blog.
I have never received a reply from Stuart nor anyone else. I have e-mailed a lady who's relative was on the Yankee also, got her email somewhere during an on line search but never a reply from her. I have never received a…"

"Stuart - I've been looking for a copy of Voyage of Brigantine Yankee for many years and I would be greatly appeciative if I could buy a copy from you. Please advise by a message to my email address below whether that's feasible.

This was in fact released as an educational video in VHS and the large format U that colleges used. Therer may even be Sony Beta as well though I have not seen a catalogue offering such.

I would also think that the Society would at least recoup its costs, if not turn marginal profit if it were to re-release on CDRom or DVD, even if they did not digitally enhance it to modern production standards. I would certainly buy a copy.
