Have to 2nd Tristan jones as fun sea fiction.
Especially the end of "incredible voyage" where he and all these other celebrities are supposedly manhandling sea dart (his 17ft ocean going vessel) to fit in a freight elevator in the Waldorf in NYC
for the explorers club banquet, then raised sails
on stage to tell his story as the guest of honor LMAO!!!
the part where they're pulling Sea Dart down thru the jungle from Lake Titicaca trying to launch it in the Amazon to float out and are so hungry they're boiling a monkey and he describes the monkeys tail as having a hand and how it was creepy to him is gold as well!!!k
Read all his books
in order then read the one by the guy disproving Triston...it includes published authors like the Pardeys whom instantly thought eccentric Tristan was beyond just "Ghey"
My buddy who circumnavigated met Triston during his years going round..said of him "couldn't stand the blow hard" when I brought up Tristan's name..
