Post Eight Down

Hi, I have just published my book "EIght Down" covering 8 maritime disasters spanning a period of 42 years, starting with the Edmund Fitzgerald in 1975 to the Stellar Daisy in 2017. Available on Amazon. Strong focus on the underlying issues that differentiate between a near-miss and a disaster. Is it luck or is it the awareness or raised consciousness of someone who acts before the last step occurs. Sir Ernest Shackleton said: "I have often marveled at the thin line which separates success from failure."
