... available to tow the shipwreck. I ran after him at one point, joining him as he jumped over massive fishing boats talking to foreign sailors, asking for captains, asking if they knew anyone who could help. It was very exciting, and daunting at the same time.
We managed to find quite a few people who owned boats big enough for the job, but the cost was too high. When people see that you’re desperate, they really try their luck at the highest prize.
