The Yacht I hitched a ride on

Here are some photos of the Silvretta, the yacht that I hitched a ride on and wrote about in “A True Love Story” published in Life Choices: Navigating Difficult Paths.  Boat people will recognize that she’s a ketch – 75 foot long.  Really a small ship.  There was a crew of 9.  I had my own cabin with a blue bathtub.  Can you imagine how great that was after sleeping in a hammock in a grass hut for months with only salt water showers?

note:  photos are from 1973, Pacific Coast of Central America

The British captain who gave me my break - and Tom, fellow crewman, at the wheel.
