Ewart Brookes

Deep sea towage, salvage and rescue tales from England are centered around the full length picture of the late december 1951 / Jan 1962 story of the attempt of the Turmoil to save the American freighter Flying Enterprise whose captain Kurt Carlsen captured public interest in his determination to stay with his ship. From the origins of towing and Dutch supremacy in the field, on to modern day ships and their equipment and abilities, this spreads its many stories through all sorts of dirty weather, all kinds of disasters and types of towing and rescue, and describes the complex laws that are involved. It tallies the mileage the tugs have covered, the specialized kinds of jobs they do, the seamanship that is required and the delicate art of maneuvering around a vessel in distress. Its main tale of the Turmoil and Flying Enterprise gets full treatment with all stops out. Flattering recognition of robust seagoers, this provides an elegant sufficiency of salty adventuring.
