Joshua Slocum once quoted an old sailors adage that went somethin like, “below 40’S latitude there is no law and below 50’S lattitude there is no God.” While law has long since been established below 40’S latitude. In all my reading so far any sailor to pass through the nightmare that is below 50’S lattitude still seems to ask themself the question of God’s residency there abouts.
I know I have mentioned it in a few posts on this forum. I agree, it's a splendid book.
