I have had a story on the back burner for too long. I wrote the opening chapter about 5 years ago and decided it was far overdue for completion. The story opens with a teen in the midst of West Coast Canada storm aboard his uncle's tugboat, who he is not supposed to be skippering but is. The tugboat hits and sustains a near catastrophic hole from a floating container that went overboard from a freighter in the same storm. Sound familiar yet? This is nearly the exact opening scene in All Is Lost with Robert Redford. This sort of thing is feared by all bluewater sailors and is not necessarily new. I read about it on a sailing forum somewhere but it's not exactly common occurence either. Should I be thinking up another opening?
