Can you say no ? Will a woman understand your refusal? These are the questions RESCUE asks. The story is told against the background of an actual day and night search and rescue in the Gulf Stream. The conflict on the S.A.R. vessel arises between the Executive Officer and the Ensign after the Captain finds the lone man floating in the breaking seas. He finds him through extraordinary diligence after everyone else on the vessel had given up. This dramatic search and rescue is authentic in every detail as the author himself participated in this life-threatening nighttime rescue. For this he was rewarded a Commandants Commendation for heroism at sea. For the author this experience was, . . . the furthest point of his navigation.
