At the Mercy of the Sea

has anyone read this book by John Kretschmer? it is about 3 sailors and how they were caught in hurricane Lenny. I thought it was an amazing and tragic story that John managed to put into words.

I just finished it. A very well written book, and a true story. His close friendship with one of the victims made it all that more poignant.
