Trawler: A Journey Through the North Atlantic by Redmond O'Hanlon
In "Trawler", Redmond O'Hanlon describes his most dangerous journey yet - on a trawler sailing from Stromness to Greenland. With a two million pound overdraft, captain Jason and his crew of six have to take the boat out in a Force 12 (junior hurricane). And unable to fish the North Sea or Icelandic waters their journeys are becoming ever longer and more dangerous, in search of ever stranger fish. O'Hanlon's book provides an account of danger, camaraderie, Greenland halibut, exotic seabirds, enormous fry-ups and a slightly mad - and very scared - English scientist set down among half-a-dozen tough Scotsmen.
