Season 16, Episode 9 Prince of the Oyster Pirates

An incident in the life of Jack London is re-created in this drama about the San Francisco waterfront. London: Dennis Whitcomb. Mamie: Jane Zachary. French: Ken Mayer. Scratch: Ray Guth.

I tried to find it on Netflix but no luck. Anyone familiar with it?

I always thought that would have been a great movie, too. I read Tania Aebi's book as soon as it came out, and years later, bought a copy for my 13 year old daughter.

No comparison between the way Dekker did it and the way Aebi did it. Aebi had no GPS, no trackers, no e-mail, (I think she did have a sat phone that she never really got to work). And, she basically went around the world without an engine as it seems every time she really needed it, it took a dump on her.

Re: Sailing movies/ films

Hi thanks for starting the thread, great stuff. I have a question that sort of relates and maybe one of you could provide me some guidance. I love watching the movies many of you have listed here free on YouTube. What I am looking for is a good YouTube channel for mew sailing folks like me. Thanks Again, Tim

Different, younger woman, similar name. There is a documentary about Laura Dekker out there called Maidentrip.

I agree. I managed to watch the whole movie for the sailing and story, but the overall acting and 70s quality was really bad.

I stand corrected. Today we don't need any of that stuff just our cell phone and a wet finger.........no, I'm in error again, I for one will still require the sex part if nothing else

Using a sextant and DR doesn't make you a "true" circumnavigator. It makes you a circumnavigator who used a sextant and DR.
