Making Waves synopsis
This autobiography records the diverse work of the maritime author. In 1939 he obtained a Scottish graduate degree, unable to obtain vocational training, and later passed the testimony of his second colleague, and sailed as a navigational officer.
This gave him freedom of movement on a very large range of ships, from the MacBraynes' PS Gondolier, as the first food maker until the declaration of war. In the following ten years, including the entire World War II, he served on a British coast ship that was diverted to service as a rescue convoy, a Portuguese submarine flying Panamanian flag, two battalions, a two-steamed yacht, four tankers (one of which was Norwegian and one air- Property at sea) and nine cargo ships (once again one Norwegian and one weather reporting vessel).
Although this combination is not unique, it is certainly difficult to be equal, much less. Thus, "making waves" provides a broad account of what life in the merchant marine and its state in the countries visited, and contains many tales and sense of humor..
