Seaworthy: A Swordboat Captain Returns to the Sea, by Linda Greenlaw
Category: biographies, Maine, maritime, sailing
Subject/Topic: “America’s only female swordfish boat captain returns with this long- awaited follow-up to the bestselling The Hungry Ocean.
After the exploits recounted in The Perfect Storm and The Hungry Ocean that made her a sensation, Linda Greenlaw took a ten- year hiatus from blue-water fishing. When an old friend offered her a captaincy on his swordboat, Greenlaw ditched her mounting bills and headed for the sea. Full of adventure and thought-provoking reflection, Seaworthy recounts her return to the beautiful and deadly Grand Banks -from the nuances of reading weather and the complexities of longline fishing to the surprise of landing in jail for crossing into Canadian waters. The result is both a wild ride and a memorable look at one woman’s struggle to define her own limits.”
