From Thames steam tugs to yachts in the Med - an entertaining and perceptive tale of working and living afloat. If you like adventure combined with an uplifting tale of overcoming a difficult childhood, this is for you! But it's also infinitely more. It is about realizing a dream and has a universal appeal to sailors and landlubbers alike.
A serendipitous decision had resulted in Anthony experiencing the harsh life of a Thames Tugman, with its long hours and omnipresent dangers. However, after seven years, he had felt the urge to move on. He set himself the new goal of combining his desire to sail with his overwhelming urge to travel. He qualified as a yacht skipper and in his first command, he navigated the French and Belgian canals en route for the Med in an ill-conceived and disastrous new yacht. This experience involved a delusional owner, his nymphomaniac muse, and an engineer who knew nothing about engines. But he was not expecting that his new profession would later result in him having to deal with a gun-toting con-man, Americans demanding that he control the weather, perverts, orgies, and the chaotic fiascos of a boat not fit for purpose!
