Sea Stories

There I was...

Okay, here's your chance to tell those old tales to a fresh audience. Anything of a vaguely navigational nature will be accepted; note that the first story is actually about watching the space shuttle launch while underway.

All stories are subject to editing by me for spelling and bad language; before making any major changes I will check with the author. Nothing classified, please.

Submit your stories to with a subject of "Sea Story".
