From the Publisher

The Author has written this story in his own unique way - unique because it is a story about the love and hell raising of the men with courage, who fought against incredible odds and won. These were the men of the Merchant Navy. It is a story of life at sea (which was hell) and, above all, life on shore in every port of call during World War ll. There were tears, laughter and one hell of a lot of loving going on during those dreaded war years.During his years in the Merchant Navy while serving on petrol tankers, the most dangerous ships afloat, the author tells it all - warts and all. After reading this book, the reader may think that the only things the Merchant Seamen did was to get pissed and visit the ladies of the night, but be assured, that their time in port was very short compared tothe very long and dangerous days and nights spent on the cruel seas, transporting much needed equipment and petrol for the war effort - which now allows you to read this book in peace and freedom.Let the Good Times Roll !

There’s a Wonderfully Strange Ship Graveyard

WHEN I MOVED to Staten Island a couple years ago, it comforted me to see the blackened stubs of old pillars poking out of the harbor where the docks used to be, the overturned tree trunks and scrap metal. I had lived in Manhattan and Brooklyn for years, and on Staten Island—where there’s less pressure to erase and replace—oddities can linger and even flourish. There’s no better example of this than the Staten Island boat graveyard, a wetland area on the North Shore that was once home to hundreds of retired ships, broken-down and rusting in shallow water—most of them beyond salvage, toxic from

A Mast With a Past

SHE WAS SITTING on a rusted trailer in a driveway on a street in Rhode Island where we were staying on vacation. She was full of dead leaves and rainwater, a fiberglass relic of the 1960s. Her paint was faded, and her deck was laced with hairline cracks. It was love at first sight. What I saw was a boat that could be my very own, a sleek centerboard sloop, 20 feet long, ready to take me wherever I pointed it. What my wife, Susan, saw was a needy addition to the family. But she didn’t veto the purchase, and I, in my wisdom, never asked her to help me work on it. I bought my dream a decade ago
