In twenty years of delivering sailboats to far-flung quaysides, Kretschmer has had innumberable adventures, both humorous and terrifying. In this first paperback edition of the wildly successful Flirting with Mermaids, he recounts the most memorable of them, from a Western Caribbean research voyage with a crew of eccentric Swedes to a North Atlantic crossing during which he discovers the existence of Force 13 winds.
