Jack Marino

Forgotten Heroes

 

Jack Marino is originally from Everett Massachusetts.

This typical working class city at that time was made up of mostly Sicilians, Irish Roman Catholic Democrats, who by the way - were all conservatives. He and all his friends were the children of World War II veterans; it is from this world that shapes his political, religious and patriotic ideals

As a young boy his Father took him to see all those great films of the mid 50s and 60s. It was in those darkened temples that he dreamed of being in the picture business. His inspiration for being an actor was reading "The Films of Errol Flynn" and "My Wicked, Wicked Ways". Other great actors he would read and follow their films, John Barrymore, James Cagney, Bogey, Ronald Coleman, Orson Wells, Richard Burton, Charlton Heston, the Duke and Robert Mitchum, the list is endless. Warner Bros of the 30s & 40s was the favorite of all the studios with contract directors like Michael Curtiz, Raoul Walsh and Vincent Sherman, a dear friend and mentor.

A student of the Boston Catholic school system his early life, he eventually went to Northeastern University in Boston and graduated with a BS in Criminal Justice. This was his first massive exposure to the 60s radical malcontent mindset. It was at Northeastern that he started doing theater in the round. His first Shakespearean role was Ross in Macbeth. After two years of fencing and acting in plays he wanted to get into Repertory Theater. Once he was out of Northeastern, his former teacher/director cast him as Cyrano de Bergerac in that ambitious play she was directing. Four weeks into rehearsal the play was shut down for lack of funds. Sounds familiar? This would be a way of life in the world of independent filmmaking once he got to Hollywood.

After the play shut down he got into his 1971 Dodge Charger and headed for Hollywood for six months. While out here he met a lot of film stars, old prize fighters who knew everyone from the old days of Hollywood. His plan was to get a feel for the place. He worked in a couple of films and then returned home to marry his high school sweetheart. Back in Everett, they both worked for another two years. By mid '80 they were back living in Los Angeles.

During the next four years he formed two production companies, had a couple of scripts and was taking them around to all the studios. In '83 he raised private funds to produce his first independent film "KILLZONE". It was one of the biggest hits of the 1985AFM and it changed the entire film market to low budget action films. In Jan. of '86 he was asked by his DP on KILLZONE to put together the film, "Hell’s Outlaw" and borrowing a friend’s credit card he made the film. By the fall of '86 he began putting together the film project called "FORGOTTEN HEROES". Little would he know that this film would end up becoming his Calypso in this twenty-year odyssey.

Jack has been married now for thirty-one years to a green-eyed Irish girl he met in 1969. Their daughter, now married, recently gave birth to "Identical twin girls". Their son is in the Army and recently finished his tour of duty with the 25th INF DIV in a Striker Brigade in Baghdad, Iraq and is now with the Army Reserves here in Los Angeles.

By the way, he still has that '71 Dodge Charger, still has that same girl, and when the world was young, they went everywhere in that car. He would tell her of his dreams, making films in Hollywood, living up on Mulholland Farm, having fat kids and watching their vineyards grow! Now that their kids are out on their own, he is with his girl again, only he can remember when.

Show #189 The BEST of JACK MARINO SHOW 158 (February 23, 2014) - Steve Hayes, writer, actor, producer. Steve first came to Hollywood in 1949, stayed a brief time, then went back to Canada and returned in 1950 to stay. Errol Flynn had promised to sponsor him but didn't (typically) so it took him a little while to find one. He then began acting and got my first part at 20th century Fox (where he was later was put under contract) in the movie: Bells on Their Toes.

Steve will talk about about Ava Gardner and his relationship with her, whom he met at Errol Flynn's house with her ex-husband, Mcikey Rooney. He is pretty sure that was the first time he met her--though he did know Lana Turner, whom he knew well, also introduced me to Ava--but he says, that was when Ava said we'd already met at Flynn's. He will talk about various other movie stars who were in some way attached to her or that he met through her, etc. Lana Turner, Sinatra, Robert Taylor, names like that.

Steve has often told me he never quite gotten fully over Ava, which is understandable. Sinatra never did either. But she was hard to love. She swore like few women he ever known--especially in an era when normal girls barely said shit. Steve not only knew Lana Turner but worked on a film called Diana or Dian (I'l look it up) that co-starred a young Roger Moore. He met Rita Hayworth when I painted her house with my pal and house-painter, Dick Morris. Later, he saw her again and they briefly talked Hollywood, including about her being neighbors of Glenn Ford

At Errol Flynn's he became friends with Ann Sheridan, the Ooomph Girl, who was one of Flynn's buddies and romantic interests years prior. Steve actually punched out actor Bruce Cabot at a party at Flynn's. Ida Lupino was a close pal of Errol's--I think they cared for one another--and years later, she became a director (Thriller or Chiller) of a weekly TV show. Bob Middleton, Steve;s mentor, starred in one show and Steve went to several days of shooting and talked at great lengths with Ida.

Steve's birth name was Ivan Hayes, which he soon changed to Steve Hayes because Ivan is Russian for John Fox insisted he change his name to something more American. he stole the name of Steve from his buddy, Mr. America Steve Reeves, who starred in European films like Hercules.

Show #184 Mark Reed Republican candidate for the 30th Congressional District here in California. MARK REED ASKED Is Congress and the Federal Government doing a good job? Would you retain an employee if you only approved of his performance 10% of the time?

On November 4th you have the power to change that by choosing new representation. I'm humbly asking for your vote. I have a strong belief that real representation will put country before party and people before politics. I am running for Congress in California's 30th District to bring our voice to Washington D.C. and express our concerns and needs.

Because of partisan politics, our country is mired in multiple scandals, including the VA, the IRS and Benghazi. We are over 17 trillion dollars in debt, welfare spending has been increased by 60% and 43 million people are now collecting food stamps. Over nine million jobs have vanished, millions have given up looking for work, and the unemployment rate remains stubbornly high. Economic growth is stuck in the 2%-3% range. In the first quarter of 2014 the GDP plummeted 2.5%.

World respect for the United States is at an all-time low. Our Mid-East policy is in complete disarray, and for the first time since 1947, Israel's existence is truly in danger. Radical Islam, Russia, Iran and China are on the march. Iraq has disintegrated since we withdrew our troops, and there is the danger of an Islamic Caliphate forming in the heart of the Middle East, stretching from Syria to Afghanistan. The recent Affordable Health Care Act rollout has been an ongoing disaster with millions losing their healthcare insurance, their family doctor, and their local hospital.

Please join my campaign by making a donation or volunteering some of your talents and time. Please send me an email or join me at one of my events. Together we can restore America for our grandchildren and preserve the freedoms promised to us by our Founding Fathers.

I am humbly asking for your vote on November 4th. God bless you and God Bless America. Mark Reed

Show #181 Frank Monastra, the grandson of Frank Brancato, I am delighted to inform you that I delve into the secret life of one of Ohio's most feared personalities and a lynchpin in the Sicilian underworld. "Brancato; Mafia Street Boss" is currently available in all popular eBook formats and on print. It can be ordered from Amazon.com and from Barnes & Noble.

For many years, FBI agents were under direct orders from the Director, J. Edgar Hoover himself; to observe Brancato's activities and attempt to collect information that would lead to a criminal conviction and his deportation. Throughout the years, various agents-G-Men- had made several attempts to pin mob-style "hits" on Brancato. However, eyewitnesses would suddenly disappear or die from an unexpected-or mysterious-illness. Cases would quickly fall apart for lack of evidence and Brancato would walk away clean.

With years of robbery, extortion, murder and bootlegging under his belt, Brancato moved quickly up the La Cosa Nostra ladder. Allegedly in 1972 one year before his death, Frank Brancato took on his last role within the mafia family as their Consigliore. Mr. Brancato had been credited with bringing Danny Greene into the Cleveland crime scene. Frank Brancato has been mentioned in two well-known books by author Rick Porrello, "The rise and fall of the Cleveland Mafia and To Kill the Irishman". Mr. Brancato was portrayed by actor Vinny Vella (Casino, the Soprano's and in the movie "To Kill the Irishman" which was released back in 2011.

"Mafia Street Boss" Continues to give Clevelander's the excitement and romance of a Mob Boss, as well as it expanses accurate and exciting news on the Mafia activities that took place in our wonderful city from 1930 until his death in 1973.

Show #175 Robert Burton Actor, Producer, Creative Consultant, for most of his life, Robert was told by many that he should be in the entertainment industry. No matter what job he held at the time, it was always the same. In high school, he was the class clown. In a 9 year military career spanning the Marine Corps and the Army, Robert was always the one called on by his fellow soldiers to perform skits and entertain.

As a software test engineer, he brought fun and excitement to an environment that is traditionally mundane by doing all kinds of crazy imitations and spot-on monologues.

For only spending such a short time in Hollywood, Robert has come very far. As a respected voice talent who works directly for NBC, Robert has been the lead voice actor for video games, television & radio commercials, animated television shows, and has also created a small ring tone empire. As an actor, Robert has co-starred on TV shows like "No Ordinary Family" and "Matchmakers", as well as movies like "Little Blue Pill" and "The Details." It was in his lead role as the misguided super hero on the TV series "Rat-Man" however, that helped earn him his 2nd nomination from the LA Comedy Awards in 2011.

Robert began Producing almost instinctively after his first year in Hollywood. Whenever a project came up that he was working on needed help with casting, location acquisition, or voice and video editing, Robert always stepped up to the plate. Once he started to navigate the strange realm that is IMDB by helping himself and many others to add credits, bios, trivia, and a myriad of other things that most people wouldn't even think of for their career pages, his fate was sealed... he was an Actor / Producer. High point for 2013: Robert was a Producer for the TV Pilot "Whoa!" with Linda Blair, Leslie Jordan, Dawnn Lewis, Taryn Southern, and Mark Gannt.

Also a part time comedian, Robert became a successful one in March 2012 when he won the LA Comedy Awards for "Most Hilarious Voice Over" presented by Jaime Masada at The Laugh Factory in Hollywood. Sadly, Robert no longer tours. Robert brings his love and passion for the entertainment industry, his incredible wit & gift for comedy, his vast technology experience, and limitless potential as a talent to G5. He is one of the 3 founding members of G5 Entertainment Group.

Show #172 My guest will be two congressional republican candidates Christopher Mitchum in the 24th District & Mark Reed in the 30th District who are both conservative constitutionalist. Kicking off his second run for Congress, Chris Mitchum isn't pulling any punches. " n the past 16 years, we've seen our national debt double," the veteran actor and political agitator told the News-Press. While he is only one of the eight candidates challenging incumbent Mrs. Capps, D-Santa Barbara, for the 24th Congressional District seat, Mr. Mitchum has made it clear that Mrs. Capps is his target.

Mark Reed is running as a Republican for Congress in the Statewide Direct Primary Election on June 3rd, 2014 in California's 30th District. In 2008 the American people voted for change. After five years in office, Barack Obama has increased the debt to over 17 trillion dollars, increased welfare spending by 60% and 43 million people are now collecting food stamps. Over nine million jobs have vanished, millions have given up looking for work and the unemployment rate remains stubbornly high. Economic growth is stuck in the 2%-3% range. World respect for the United States is at an all-time low. Our Mid-East policy is in complete disarray and for the first time since 1947 Israel's existence is truly in danger. Radical Islam, Russia, Iran and China are on the march. And the recent ObamaCare rollout has been an ongoing disaster with millions losing their healthcare insurance.

Together we can restore America for our Grandchildren and preserve the freedoms promised to us by our Founding Fathers. I am humbly asking for your support and vote.

God bless you and God Bless America

Show #171 Homer Hickam has written nineteen books including the acclaimed #1 New York Times memoir Rocket Boys which was made into the film October Sky. Rocket Boys is studied in hundreds of schools and is popular around the world. It is also being developed as a Broadway musical with Mr. Hickam as co-writer. When asked what it takes to write a successful memoir, Mr. Hickam replies, "It helps to have an interesting life."

Mr. Hickam was raised in Coalwood, West Virginia, the second son of the mine superintendent, Homer Hickam, Sr., and his wife Elsie. His father loved Coalwood and its mine, his mother hated both. "Sonny," as he was known then, was caught in the middle. Then he began to build rockets and live the story he would so famously tell.

After graduating from Virginia Tech, Mr. Hickam served in the 4th Infantry Division in Vietnam. Afterwards, he was an engineer for the Army Missile Command in Huntsville. He also became a scuba instructor and was awarded Alabama's highest award for heroism for his underwater rescue work. With NASA in Huntsville, he trained astronauts and designed spacecraft. He wrote about that in a memoir titled Paco: The Cat Who Meowed in Space. He is also an amateur paleontologist who discovered two Tyrannosaurus rexes. He wrote about that, fictionally, in a novel titled The Dinosaur Hunter.

Mr. Hickam's first book was Torpedo Junction, the true story of the battle against the U-boats along America's coasts during World War II. Then came Rocket Boys , a National Book Critics Circle Award nominee among many other honors. Other books followed including the memoir sequels The Coalwood Way and Sky of Stone plus his popular Josh Thurlow novels—The Keeper's Son, The Ambassador's Son, and The Far Reaches— and his latest, the Helium-3 series titled Crater, Crescent, and, most recently, Crater Trueblood and the Lunar Rescue Company. More than anything, Mr. Hickam says he loves to write and hopes that is how he will be remembered—a writer who knew how to tell a good story.

Desperate, he ends up on the doorstep of childhood friend Marvin Croat and asks him for a massive favor: help get rid of the body.
Marvin, an unemployed and divorced loser, agrees to make the body disappear, but the reality of actually performing this gruesome act drives Marvin into a state of deep depression and guilt. He turns to Kip for solace and comfort, since he's the only other person who knows what's happened, but Kip, wanting to stay removed from the situation, insists the two keep their distance. Increasingly angered by what he feels is a callous betrayal, Marvin begins to ask Kip for favors that soon grow in size and difficulty. When Kip tries to refuse, Marvin threatens to go to the authorities with information about Abby's death. Although Marvin's ploy works at first, eventually Kip refuses to give into this blackmail, forcing Marvin to resort to more violent methods of getting the payback he feels he deserves. This leads both men to murderous acts neither had ever suspected themselves capable of.

Show #164 Mark Reed congressional Candidate for the 30th district of California. Mark is the only true Reagan conservative constitutionalist running in his district. Mark Reed is the 2014 Republican candidate challenging incumbent Congressman Brad Sherman in the 30th Congressional District of California. Mark ran against Congressman Brad Sherman in 27th District in 2010. Mark had the second smallest margin in the State of Calif. challenging an incumbent Democrat. Mark is now endorsed by over a hundred national, state and local elected officials and leaders. The list includes leaders like Michael Reagan, Amb. John Bolton and Michael Antonovich.

He was born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, a suburb of Los Angeles, California. Born August 11, 1957, Mark is a descendant of the Mohawk and Apache tribes, mixed with German, English, Spanish and French. After graduation from El Camino Real High School in 1975, Reed studied Architectural Drafting at Pierce Jr. College from 1976-1978. Reed, age 57, is a successful actor, small businessman, rancher and an advocate for constitutional government as specified by our Founding Fathers. After working in management positions for several years, he bought his first company at age 26 and opened a small retail store. He sold both and bought out his second company at age 32.

He has sat on the board of directors of several companies, chaired many national committees and currently sits on the board of directors of the CAB at KCET. He is the National Representative for American Indians, dealing with the national issues concerning Indians in Media and diversity contracts with the networks and studios. Reed is an avid rancher, horseman, outdoorsman, community advocate and animal lover. A dedicated family man, Reed married Nina, his childhood sweetheart, August 19, 1978. They have three adult children: Son Mark, Jr. 32, Daughters Tania 31 and Jessica 29. They also have 7 beautiful grandchildren: Angelica 10, Ashlynn 3, Cloe 8 and Kalei 7, Michael and Riley twins, eleven months, Autumn, 6months. Mark and Nina have their 8th and 9th grandchildren on their way and they are here born Nov.14th 2013

WHY I AM RUNNING - I have twelve important reasons for caring what happens in Congress – my three children and my nine grandchildren. My wife, Nina, and I have taught them to work before they play, to save before they spend. They're resourceful, thrifty, and self-reliant. But it almost doesn't matter. Because every time Congress bails out another bank, automaker, insurer, or mortgage lender, they pile debt on my children and grandchildren. If you take the national debt as it now stands, and divide it equally among every man, woman, and child in the country, we each owe $37,000. That number will more than double over the next ten years. That has real-life consequences. When my ten-year-old granddaughter graduates from college, her share of the national debt is likely to be as high as $100,000.

John Adams said, "There are two ways to enslave a nation. One is by arms. The other is by debt." I want to keep my children free. I'm running for Congress to restore fiscal discipline. I will work to cut spending, cap the budget at 18% of the GDP and pass a balance budget amendment. We need to grow the economy and pay off our debt!

Show #158 Steve Hayes, writer, actor, producer. Steve first came to Hollywood in 1949, stayed a brief time, then went back to Canada and returned in 1950 to stay. Errol Flynn had promised to sponsor him but didn't (typically) so it took him a little while to find one. He then began acting and got my first part at 20th century Fox (where he was later was put under contract) in the movie: Bells on Their Toes.

Steve will talk about about Ava Gardner and his relationship with her, whom he met at Errol Flynn's house with her ex-husband, Mcikey Rooney. He is pretty sure that was the first time he met her--though he did know Lana Turner, whom he knew well, also introduced me to Ava--but he says, that was when Ava said we'd already met at Flynn's. He will talk about various other movie stars who were in some way attached to her or that he met through her, etc. Lana Turner, Sinatra, Robert Taylor, names like that.

Steve has often told me he never quite gotten fully over Ava, which is understandable. Sinatra never did either. But she was hard to love. She swore like few women he ever known--especially in an era when normal girls barely said shit. Steve not only knew Lana Turner but worked on a film called Diana or Dian (I'l look it up) that co-starred a young Roger Moore. He met Rita Hayworth when I painted her house with my pal and house-painter, Dick Morris. Later, he saw her again and they briefly talked Hollywood, including about her being neighbors of Glenn Ford

Steve actually punched out actor Bruce Cabot at a party at Flynn's. Ida Lupino was a close pal of Errol's--I think they cared for one another--and years later, she became a director (Thriller or Chiller) of a weekly TV show. Bob Middleton, Steve;s mentor, starred in one show and Steve went to several days of shooting and talked at great lengths with Ida.

Steve's birth name was Ivan Hayes, which he soon changed to Steve Hayes because Ivan is Russian for John Fox insisted he change his name to something more American. he stole the name of Steve from his buddy, Mr. America Steve Reeves, who starred in European films like Hercules.

We met upon many occasions and even though he stood about 5 feet tall, he was a GIANT in my eyes. He was a Patriot and a Constitutional Scholar above everyone else I have ever met or listened to because he actually READ the document and he also read Madison's Notes on the Constitution from 1787.

As for me, I spent years and years fighting for this country and most of the "battles" fought will never be talked about. My "handle" is Snooper and that was given to me by people I talked to "on the radio" of times past. Try and figure out what a "snooper" is and that's me...I was good at it. Many things I cannot divulge but I am a Patriot's Patriot and this is why people like Loki and I get along as well as we do. When Loki was sailing off of Iran in '79, I was IN Iran at that time. That's all I can say about that.

Show #146 PAUL KOSLO actor, producer and director. This Lean-faced, intense-looking, German-born, Canada-raised Paul Koslo was at his busiest during the 1970s, usually playing shifty, untrustworthy and often downright nasty characters.

He first broke into films at age 22 in the low-budget Little White Crimes (1966), and then appeared in a rush of movies taking advantage of his youthful looks, including cult favorites Vanishing Point (1971) and The Omega Man (1971), and the western Joe Kidd (1972), martial arts blaxploitation flick Cleopatra Jones (1973) and crime thriller The Stone Killer (1973).

After working alongside such stars as John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Walter Matthau and Charles Bronson, Koslo's career drifted towards television, and in the 1980s he regularly guest-starred on such TV series as The Incredible Hulk (1978), The A-Team (1983), Matlock (1986), MacGyver (1985) and The Fall Guy (1981). Unfortunately, most of his film work in the 1990s and beyond was "straight-to-video" fare, such as Chained Heat II (1993) and Desert Heat (1999).

Koslo is well remembered by many as smart-mouthed small-time hood Bobby Kopas, trying to shake down melon grower Charles Bronson in Mr. Majestyk (1974). Paul was born in Germany, raised in Canada, trained with the National Theatre School in Montreal. Paul speaks perfect German. He met his wife, Allaire Paterson-Koslo, at The MET Theatre in Hollywood, when he produced a one-woman show, "Purple Breasts", a critically acclaimed play she co-wrote and starred in. He is one of the founding members of The MET THEATER since 1974 and continues to be on the Board of Directors.

He attended Hamilton College and the University of Virginia and has worked as a journalist, editor and university lecturer in Australia and the U.S. His published works include some 50 articles in historical and popular journals in both countries.  Moore lived in Australia from 1969 until 1971 and became interested in the life of Errol Flynn during a visit to Papua New Guinea for a professional conference in 1970.

The Australian-born actor Errol Flynn was known for his romantic lead roles in films such as Captain Blood (1935) and The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938). He was also known for his colorful life off screen. In the new book The Young Errol: Flynn Before Hollywood (published by Trafford Publishing), Moore takes an in-depth look at the life of the young Errol Flynn to detail the budding actor’s rise to fame.

“It’s an attempt to explain Flynn’s strange background,” Moore says about his biography of the Hollywood star. Building on Flynn’s autobiography, My Wicked, Wicked Ways, Moore takes care to peel back the mysteries surrounding Flynn’s childhood and adolescence.  “Thanks to My Wicked, Wicked Ways, one can often discern the difference between truth and fiction throughout his brief but spectacular career,” notes Moore. “He really did have an exotic beginning.”

The Young Errol includes anecdotes as well as quotations from Flynn’s own diaries and from people who knew him.  Moore offers this insight into Flynn’s career: “While his golden age in Hollywood produced some wondrous swashbuckling, Errol Flynn was not really acting at all. He was merely transferring a natural style developed in Sydney, Port Moresby, Rabaul and London to a much larger audience.”

Show #120  Susan DeSantis-Ferrito she is the widow of Raymond W. Ferritto was the only mobster in the history of LA COSA NOSTRA that ever destroyed a leadership, lived to tell about it and rose to become a boss.   Susan takes you back to those infamous times with their extraordinary lives and how together, they mysteriously functioned in this dangerous and complicated world until Ray Ferritto died a peaceful death in 2004. As his wife and most trusted confidant, she had the rare privilege of slipping into a powerful role in this male dominated culture and reveals one of the Mob's best kept secrets!

Raymond W. Ferritto, made man, dangerous killer, skilled safecracker, compulsive gambler, loan shark and power broker to La Cosa Nostra, was born ruthless and destined for control. He knew how to organize and carry out an assassination...and how to leave it behind. He was a highly respected underworld figure, with sights on becoming an underboss for the Cleveland Crime Family...until they betrayed him.  Setting him up "to take a bullet" for the gruesome bombing death of the notorious Danny "The Irishman" Greene, Ferritto instinctively struck back against the very constituents who ordered his murder after he did them the biggest favor of their lives.  Struggling to stave off certain death, he laid out a radical plan of survival, defying the odds and triumphantly stepped into the position of ranking boss of Northwestern Pennsylvania. To this day, this bold and calculated move to seize his own territory even baffled the Feds...when he was never killed in retaliation.

Back in the 1950s, Errol Flynn and producer Victor Pahlen owned a movie theater in Havana. They happened to be there when Castro's revolution broke out around them, so they took to the streets with their cameras to document history as it happened, at ground zero.
The result was a unique documentary of Castro's uprising, hosted by Flynn, featuring unrivaled footage of the conflict and Castro himself. Circumstances outside their control shelved the film for nearly fifty years; "Cuban Story" has never been screened, never seen, never released--until now. All Day Entertainment is proud to have worked with the Pahlen family to restore this landmark documentary from the only surviving negative materials, stored in England for nearly a half century. Includes an introduction by producer Victor Pahlen's daughter

Show #99 Glenn Damato was a forty-one year old software instructor who walked away from his humdrum existence on a mission for which he was miserably unprepared. Why do this? The goal, in his words, was “to become something I am not.” The “something” Damato chose to become was an ocean sailing skipper. Overweight and without boating experience of any kind, he decided to achieve his lifelong dream of sailing around the world on his own vessel.  Reckless? Dangerous? Idiotic? Call it what you will, Damato was determined to make the voyage a reality despite the obstacles.  Suddenly without the comforts and security of his previous life, Damato was forced to conquer his anxieties while at the same time surviving the hazards and challenges of offshore sailing. As his experience and confidence mounts, he discovers he has indeed undergone a personal transformation – one quite different than he originally hoped, and in some ways worthier than he imagined.

Breaking Seas is a tale of ocean voyaging, but it’s not just about sailing: the all-encompassing themes are rejection and disappointment – and our common human quest to get the most out of life despite being born into an imperfect universe.  Part sailing adventure, part philosophical pilgrimage, Breaking Seas is for everyone who’s ever wanted to embark on an enterprise of some kind despite not meeting society’s expected “qualifications.”
