The boat racked like an old basket, letting in water at every seam and split. Sharp flashes of lightning caused by heat and vapor shot across the gloom, rendering the scene doubly horrid. Thus passed the night. Day came and thirst pressed upon us, which we could only allay by wetting our mouths twice a day with a few drops of wine and water, and as many times with our urine.
Captain James Riley, recounting being shipwrecked off the coast of Morocco in 1815.

Thor Heyerdahl's reed ship, Ra 2


Spirit of the Vikings, David Grant

The Glorious Adventure, Richard Halliburton

The Rob Roy on the Jordan, John MacGregor
