More > shrapnel. The remains came back to earth in slow motion; the clatter on the deck returning time to normal. The boat slid off and back from her victim like a dismounting bull. “Damn it! I’m sorry….” “Why did you do that?” demanded the truncated owner. Well, I thought the question was quite likely rhetorical, so we settled for a meeting on Monday. There was not enough beer in the world to wash away the embarrassment. By the time I had paid for the repairs to both yachts I was about $4000 poorer, and I suppose that was what made me decide to buy the boat; I already held equity. Travel with Duncan & Irene on an exciting three-year loop of the Atlantic Ocean. Experience storms and the drama of new landfalls.
