It seems, when you want something badly enough, it does not matter,what kind of
weather is at hand, epsecially when you're trying desperately to support a family.
If you like excitement,adventure and never a dull moment this is what you need.

What you do is you put a piece of rubber (or even a slab of bacon!) against the hull from the inside of the ship, inside the "double-bottom tanks" that line the hull at the bottom, and you force it against the steel with braces or even a car jack
Haha, bacon! Holy crap!
Makes you wonder why more ships don't just dissolve in the middle of the ocean.
Also, loved Annie's Revenge, it was hilariously vicious.

Max, you live quite an adventurous life! The chapter of Annie's Revenge made me very nervous. I did like how Annie got her revenge. You need friends like her in your line of work.
I was worried for you a few times between the poor conditions of the ships, the dangerous ports, and the unpredictable weather. Every chapter I would start relaxed and by the end of the chapter I would be on the edge of my seat! You did a great job telling your story!
