In the meantime, I've just finished
Charlie Codman's Cruise.
It's about a young man who is kidnapped and sent aboard a sailing
ship as a cabin boy. Several wicked men contrive to make his life
miserable but in the end he prevails. There are pirates, a horrid
captain, the first mate from Hades, and scoundrels abound. This is a
Horatio Alger story so you know how it turns out. Still, it's a good
read, and I'm glad I was able to enjoy it again.
You can use the link provided for
a version on Amazon or visit
http://gutenberg.org and search there. The formatting is not
always perfect mind you. The price, free, works great for my budget.
Generally I'm able to make out the words from the context so it's
fine for me.
I had to share "The Joys of Boat
Ownership" with you and it makes me chuckle each time I see that
bucket of bucks flying. So true, so very true...
