Re: Blind Sailor Wrecks

Blind sailor relying on electronics for navigation? What could possibly go wrong? Plus a woman on board? Double jeopardy! Suspect her navigation and seamanship skills may not have been on par with his. Still glad they were able to make it to shore. Always good to have a happy ending after some of the recent news on the waters.

Re: Blind Sailor Wrecks

I read this story and frankly, I had mixed feelings about it. I am sorry his vessel was ransacked, however.
Can't sleep? Read for fast relief. Can't read? Avoid, because it's just personal reviews of sea books.
