About the Author

Len Helsing wanted to work on a boat in the Pacific Ocean ever since he was a boy. He arrived on the BC coast in 1954 and quickly set about accomplishing his goal. He has worked on commercial tugboats and federal patrol boats over a long and eventful career at sea; these are some of his stories from that time. Captain Helsing continues to travel British Columbia in his retirement, though mostly on land these days.
