In Danger at Sea Adventures of a New England Fishing Family by Samuel S. Cottle

In Danger at Sea Adventures of a New England Fishing Family


In Danger at Sea Adventures of a New England Fishing Family by Samuel S. Cottle

Sam Cottle grew up in a fishing family and, thanks to the inspiration of his grandfather, Cap, who nearly single-handedly created the port of Point Judith in southern Rhode Island, he became a successful captain in his own right. Here are Sam's first-hand accounts of his life at sea, from the terror of a vessel sinking in the middle of the night, to the excitement of dragging up unexploded depth charges and great white sharks in the nets, to the grueling toil and ultimate satisfaction that comes with an honest day's haul. Captain Sam introduces a whole host of colorful characters-from loving grandmothers to eccentric neighbors-all of whom played a role in shaping Sam's life and seafaring career.

About the Author

Captain Samuel Cottle is a former commercial fisherman and fishing boat owner who has experienced all the situations written about in this book. When ill health and a series of boat-related calamities forced him ashore, he moved to Maine. He currently works in financial services and lives in Albion, Maine with his wife Gloria.
