THE LOGS OF
THE GOOD SHIP TRITEIA

BY JAMES FREDERICK

This book is the complete collection of the logs that were written in real-time during a ill-fated 32 day passage on Los Angeles, California to Honolulu Hawaii on the 30 foot sloop, SV Triteia. 

These entries first appeared as blog posts on Triteia's satellite tracking page by the ships captain James Frederick. Friends of Triteia, family and loved ones tuned in daily to see the ships progress and read the logs to see how life on board was going. 

On day 14, August 26th, Triteia's rudder failed and the captain and his ship found themselves adrift in the middle of the biggest ocean on the planet. 

After the passage was complete and The Good Ship Triteia and her captain were safely tied up at Ala Wai Harbor. The messages started flooding in about how both friends and strangers alike had become transfixed with the tracker and the updates some described it like reading a pulp serial except  that it was non-fiction and no one knew how the story would end,,,, not even the writer. 

For this 258 page, perfect bound 6"x 9" paper back edition we have included 121 full color photographs printed on premium paper. Printed on demand by Ingram Spark Printing House.
