(6),vii-viii,(2),1-210,(2). 8vo, black cloth spine, grey boards. "What was supposed to be an easy cruise [aboard the fifty-eight-foot yacht Trashman] turned into a nightmare as a seventy-knot gale blew up out of nowhere. The dinghy washed overboard, the sails were shredded, and [the captain] burned out the engine trying to make a run for shore. When a forty-foot wave crashed through the cabin windows, Trashman went down in minutes, leaving the crew adrift in the storm-tossed Atlantic in a rubber dinghy that was quickly surrounded by sharks. For days they huddled together for warmth..." - from the dj. Very good in dustjacket. 16.50
