Part I: The Neverland

October - November 2010
The Neverland was my first boat; my first love affair with a tall ship. She was an old fishing boat turned sailing school. The adventure ended prematurely, but made an indelible mark on me. 

In order of appearance:
Captain Wright, the head captain who hired me
Filip, the Francophile cook turned deckhand
Kackan, the Swedish boat-building girl
Sugarbelle, the bareback pony riding tough ass 
Captain Might, our relief captain, and the captain who fired me
Zeke, the first mate
The Philosopher, the second mate
Jenny, the tree-planting Canadian
Huck, with whom I talked politics and jammed to rap music
Cat, a sweet, endearing young thing
Will, with whom I shared his first oyster
Elise, who most missed the old cook
The Queen, the administrator of the operation
