On a global tour that takes him from India to Greece to Africa, David tries in vain to keep out of trouble; poaching in the Lake District, heli-skiing in Canada, taking on the pirates of Nigeria and disguising himself as a nurse in Durban.

Gritty and raucous, these true confessions of adventures on board a merchant ship – in the bad old days before regulations made everything ship-shape and orderly – are a riot from start to finish. A must-read for anyone who’s ever dreamt of running away to sea, Baboulene’s stories will make you weep with laughter.

Review:

`packed with enough ship board hilarity to make the reader literally weep with laughter... action-packed... funniest maritime-themed books in print.'

About the Author:

As well as completing his Deck Officer Cadetship in the British Merchant Navy, David Baboulene has been a welder, as radio DJ, a cabbie, an award-winning scriptwriter and a published songwriter; he also made a million in the IT boom in the nineties and lost it all again, goddammit. He performs a one-man show telling stories from his books.
