BOUDREAU, R.L. The Man Who Loved Schooners. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing, (2000). First Edition. Pp. (6),[1]-170. Illustrated in black and white.8vo, art-and photo-illustrated blue card covers with yellow lettering to f ront cover and spine. "After a German submarine sinks the merchant barkentine Angelus, her ten crew are left to face the cold and merciless North Atlantic in a small open lifeboat without food or water. Over the next ten horrifying days, 24-year-old Walter Boudreau witnesses the death of all but oneof his shipmates. Miraculously, Boudreau survives. Just as incredible, thi s agonizing introduction to life before the mast does nothing to cool his passion for sailing. Over the next four decades, Captain Boudreau's love affair with the sea aboard his various classic schooners takes him through nautical adventures both thrilling and extraordinary. This books plots an exciting voyage from a shipwreck in the far north and the dramatic rescue of a stranded U.S. naval vessel, to an eerie encounter with a tiger shark. We witness the terror of confronting a 65-foot rogue wave, a fight with drug pirates in the Bahamas, and the onslaught of a vicious hurricane. Journing from Canada's East Coast to the Caribbean islands, across the raging Atlantic and, finally, home to Canada, the trials and tribulations of a life at sea -- including the tragic loss of several of Boudreau's beloved schooners -- are tempered by the wonderful adventures of life under sail." - from the rear cover. Vg. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be a bit cheaperthan quoted. 12.50
