A senior steward recalls the history, scams and rip-offs on the Cook Strait ferries

Not for nothing was Ted Caldwell nicknamed 'The Sheriff' by those who sailed with him on the Cook Strait ferries. His clearly defined sense of right and wrong becomes immediately evident when he describes what happens below decks. Injustice and underhand actions are to him as is a red rag to a bull, In his own words, 'I do not suffer fools gladly and I hate bloody-minded bureaucrats...'

Nobody is better to qualified to 'lift the hatches' and disclose what ferry passengers have long suspected.

Quite apart from the questions of morality raised, and the revealing personal observations recorded (some of the things you always suspected about the ferries), this book documents an important part of New Zealand's maritime history.
