    During the height of the blizzard of 1978, the tanker Global Hope floundered on the shoals off the Massachusetts coast. The Coast Guard dispatched a patrol boat, but was soon in as much trouble as the tanker. Then pilot boat captain Frank Quirk, hearing of the Coast Guard's troubles on his radio, decided to act.

    Christopher says: "A riveting story"
    "Highly Recomended"
    Overall

    Excellent book. The final section with the actual radio transmissions of the Can-do and shore bases put one INTO the tragedy where other sea stories, such as "Perfect Storm" are unable to compare. There is little need for poetic license here.
    Though there are sections whee the narrator didn't interpret the writing all that well, the writing is strong, informative, anad since I was IN this book, I can attest that it is painfully accurate.
