Weary of her Yorkshire county life of grouse moors and hunt balls, Amelia Dalton threw herself instead into running a deep sea trawler amongst the closed community of fishermen in NE Scotland in the '90s. Unprepared by her background in cookery and antiques, she had to negotiate red tape, oversee shipyards and deal with engineers and industrial tribunals, while coping with demanding shareholders and drunken employees. What began as a love affair with the romance of the sea became a battle to stay afloat - financially and literally. This is a lively account of an adventure like no other - and a voyage of self-discovery.
