    Where The Boat Is Tops... Jack London was an experienced sailor

    Where The Boat Is Tops...

    Jack London was an experienced sailor by the time he was a teenager. Born and raised in San Francisco, he was well acquainted with Pacific waters in all their stunning beautyand gross treachery, from California to Japan. an It doesn't take him long to get down to cases in The Sea Wolf, in what remains today an unrivaled telling of a ferryboat-steamboat collision in fog-bound San Francisco Bay.

    "I descended to the lower deck. The Martinez was sinking fast, for the water was very near. Numbers of the passengers were leaping overboard...I was seized by the consequent panic, and went over the side in a surge of bodies...The water was cold--so cold that it was painful. The pang, as I plunged into it, was quick and sharp as that of fire. It bit to the marrow. It was like the grip of death."
    London is at his most sure with his sea legs on deck and his nostrils sniffing a sudden weather change--far more so than creating believable human characters. In the end, perhaps, the strongest character of all is the boat itself. "...the Ghost is an eighty-ton schooner of a remarkably fine model. Her beam, or width, is twenty-three feet, and her length a little over ninety feet. A lead keel of fabulous but unknown weight makes her very stable, while she carries an immense spread of canvas." How the Ghost rides Pacific waters and the crew that mans her makes for an enjoyable read.
