The Life and Loves
of a Young Seaman
A Maritime Memoir
Jack Bentley's sexual escapades as he sails the world on a freighter are funny, dramatic, and entertaining in this "coming of age" maritime memoir with an amazing and unexpected twist!
Aboard the 10,000 ton freighter S.S. Selkirk Park out of the Port of Vancouver, the Canadian Merchant Marine Jack Bentley is witness to the tragic death of a man overboard in the the icy North Atlantic Ocean.
The ocean turns milky and it is a bad omen!
Bentley writes with a seaman's voice as he relates his innocence and transition into a very active and sexual man. Women are Bentley's weakness and include a Lesbian, a Spanish beauty, a Londoner, a mysterious senorita, a native of Tonga, a Chinese lovely, a German spy, and others and the beautiful Jean.
For love, Bentley tries to jump ship twice but is caught and kept a prisoner by his shipmates.
Bentley enchants with tales of his spills and thrills all over the world.
He offers an individual take on the horror of sailing the seas during wartime in waters infested with German submarines and Japanese Kamikaze.
There is a ghost aboard Bentley's ship, and a strange and unexpected twist to this Maritime Memoir.
Enough adventures to thrill every young male who dreams of seeing the world, every seaman who has been there and done that, and every woman who has seen her lover go off on the adventure of a lifetime!
