Author Gustav Frank Bahruthabout this book: This non-fiction book covers the development of the commercial shrimp industry for over forty years. These true adventures and history of the business, boats and lifestyle are put together from the memories and photos over a lifetime at sea. There are fifteen boats noted, thirteen commercial and two pleasure. From the late fifties thru nineties there were many changes. The first new trawler I bought, the M/V "HUSTLER" cost $28,000 and had a fuel capacity of 1500/gallons. I recall filling it up the first time with diesel fuel. When the dock attendent handed me the bill, I said $.14/gal. How are we going to pay all that! By comparison the M/V "PROVIDER" cost close to half a million dollars, held 18000/gal. and we were paying over $3.00/gal.

Each boat has a story to tell and each storm a memory for a lifetime. Including the storm of a lifetime in the "Bermuda Triangle". In retirement the love of the life on the water continued on for over a decade on a restored 33' Chris Craft, covering over 30,000 miles. A true blessing of "no grass", no taxes and an endless extension of life. We each get just one, do it now. Capt. Gus Bahruth
