The chapters are “Sounds @ Sea” about the sounds of the sea and how the sailors related to them- “Bemusing Briny Babble” about the special jargon unique to the sailing profession- sailor’s artifacts and their histories in “Maritime Curiosities in Bottles-” and “Sailor’s Knotting Knacks,” “Presentation Pieces from Old Ironsides” and “The Bald Eagle: An American Icon.” The last chapter titled “Maritime Personal Keepsakes” relates personal artifacts identified with a loved one at sea. These essays address the romance of the sailor’s profession, the sailor’s skills acquired while at sea and the patriotism related to both the romance and the sailor’s skill sets.
