Some folks said; who do you think you are to write your Autobiography? Nobody will want to read it.' These folks thought just because I am an unknown person nobody will be interested in reading about my adventures.
Well, I'm of a different mind. For a lot of people it will be very interesting to read about what they could only dream about having done or doing themselves.
I have cheated death on a number of occasions at sea and on land. I have put down a mutiny. The sailing ship I was Master of, was declared missing in the North Atlantic for days in a snowstorm, but I always brought my passengers and crew and ship back to a safe port.
I have tried and failed and succeeded in a lot of endeavors in my life, but never alone, always with a good woman beside me, encouraging and praising me. Eventually I found not only what I loved to do, but what I became very good at and was very proud to do.
To the reader I want the book to convey this one message, follow your dream and make it a reality. No matter how difficult the road ahead may seem, you will reach your goal and enjoy the rewards at the end.
