The Best of Sail Trim

I’m both drawn to the ocean and a bit fearful of it. I guess it’s more respect than fear, actually. When I was 18, a buddy and I went to Alaska to work a couple fishing seasons and we hit some 15-30 foot waves on the transport up. I wasn’t scared then because I was a stupid kid, but now that I have a bit of sense (from time to time anyway), I’d like to slap some of it into my 18 year old self. I remember going out on deck to make my way to the galley and having my view alternate between nothing but black sea and nothing but black sky. Having been a landlubber to that point, it didn’t occur to me how easy it would’ve been to fly over the railing and never be seen again. I got a lot closer to death a couple of times on that adventure, but I’ll save those for another book safe.

Black cloth with silver gilt titling on spine and front. The perfect book safe for your yacht, superyacht, or megayacht. Hell, you could put it on you dinghy if you want; whatever floats your boat.
