Chapter One

You are free-falling in the fo'c's'le[1] when the ship[2] goes up on a wave, a mound of water you can only feel in your knees as you stand in this windowless room at the front of the boat, a triangle with the huge black chain links running up from the chain locker[3], through the windlass[4] and the capstans[5] and then out through big black holes in the slanted rounding hull to the 25-ton anchors snugged against the hull but still swaying slightly.
