An Excerpt from "Sailing to Jessica"
Chapter 7: Provisions, Preparations and the Harmonica
Paul brought home another bell-ringing purchase; but in my case, it was an alarm. He set the heavy cardboard box and the slim, black rectangular case that looked like a giant harmonica in the cockpit.
Pointing to the cardboard box, he said, “I got you a present.”
Delighted, I eagerly opened it up. I stared at dozens of gray and fluorescent orange… hockey pucks? “What are these?”
