Summary

Dag Pike draws on his experience as merchant navy captain, fast boat 
navigator and boat safety tester for RNLI lifeboats to focus on a wide 
range of disasters at sea. He compiles a wide range of accounts of 
yachts, motorboats and commercial vessels running into difficulty as a 
result of poor navigation, fog, miscalculation, human error, weather 
conditions etc and analyses in a readable and entertaining fashion what 
caused the disaster, what went wrong, how it was dealt with and the 
lessons learned from it.  
 
Examples 
range from the Fastnet disaster, powerboat races, boats run down in the 
Channel, to trawlers pulled under by submarines, ferry accidents and 
tanker and cargo ship disasters. The incidents include grounding, 
collision, fire, sinking, ice and storms, and each chapter has an 
example from the Marine Accident Investigation Bureau who monitor 
incidents at sea.  
 
 
 
This book is a fascinating read for all who go afloat either for 
business or pleasure, and for anyone interested in just why disasters 
happen at sea.

    For Dillon Frayser, a rising star for The Baltimore Banners hockey team, life has come easy. A solid childhood, a happy family, a natural talent for playing the game he loves. The only thing missing is the degree he promised his parents he would get soon after he was drafted. If he could just force himself to focus on carbon atoms and organic chemistry, he wouldn't have to worry about squeezing in embarrassing tutoring sessions between a busy schedule filled with practices and games. 
    Maggie Andersen dreads meeting her new student but she needs the money that tutoring will provide. That doesn't mean she's willing to put up with the anticipated antics of an arrogant brainless jock. When she finally meets Dillon, he turns out to be the exact opposite of what she expected: smart, funny, driven, and humble. Maggie soon finds herself letting her guard down and discovering a different kind of chemistry. 
    Will the tutoring sessions lead to something more for the mismatched pair? Or is this nothing more than a one-timer for the sexy hockey player?
