"The story of yachtsman-artist-writer Joe Richards' World War II years aboard an impossibly top-heavy tug with an equally impossible crew. Richards was given command of an inland tug. He was ordred to take it from the East Coast to Hawaii, an assignment that only a displaced small-boat sailor could undertake. The Army tug ST250 was not a ship of war. All her actions were directed toward survivial: surviving the Army's bungling, her crew's bizaare behavior, and the tug's tendency to turn bottom-side up. By turns lyrical, gritty, and howlingly funny, Joe Richards has written a fititng companion volume to his cruising classic, PRINCESS. " Occasional line drawings in the text.
