David Daniel has done it again, only better. Old Salty Heads Offshore, like its predecessor Old Salty’s Misadventures in Paradise, is a witty, expressive, and hugely entertaining read.
David again blends his “olden days” buccaneers and naval heroes with events aboard his small yacht, The Catch. In this narrative, Old Salty and partner, the First, eventually reach the exotic shores of the Louisiades in Papua New Guinea.
Tales of their adventures and interaction with the locals transport the reader into the lives of the indigenous population.
The story is more than adventure, wit, or fun, it’s a window on how two ordinary Australians mix it with the South Sea islanders in social, cultural and often humorous interaction which leads to enduring friendships and mutual respect.
