Sample text

Crash! I thought the Hannah Boden had come unglued. We rolled deeply to port, buried the port outrigger, and lay there. I pushed the throttle to full ahead and wondered if she would get back on her feet before the next wave attempted to roll us over. It was painful. Every joint creaked and every muscle trembled.

It had traveled faster, and contained winds of much greater velocity, than anyone had anticipated. By the time I realized the severity of the system that was quickly bearing down on the Hannah Boden, I also realized the severity of my decision to remain at sea in spite of all warnings.
