Since grade school my family and I lived near salt water, and in retrospect I was destined for a career that was more or less maritime. Like a lot of kids, I was fascinated by those plastic Revell ship models that could be assembled from out of a box. My mother was American and my father, who was lost three months after I was born, had been a bomber pilot in the Royal Air […]
