What was the book about the guy who went to Turkey, had a big boat he couldn't afford built, lost his rudder or something on the way to deliver it to the islands, had to get towed i think or rescued. After that he didn't give up, went deeper in debt, had to pay salvage on his vessel because he left it when it was towed, then when in the islands something happened and his boat sank. I can't remember the title but that book of folly I thought was worth reading, if you like to read about self inflicted abuse and humiliation.
