On a global tour that takes him from India to Greece to Africa, David tries in vain to keep out of trouble; poaching in the Lake District, heli-skiing in Canada, taking on the pirates of Nigeria and disguising himself as a nurse in Durban. Gritty and raucous, these true confessions of adventures on board a merchant ship - in the bad old days before regulations made everything ship-shape and orderly - are a riot from start to finish. A must-read for anyone who's ever dreamt of running away to sea, Baboulene's stories will make you weep with laughter.
