The men on the SS Marine Electric sailed into a storm in February 1983 not knowing that they would make history - at a great cost in lives. Just three men survived the wreck of the Marine Electric off the shores of Virginia and they found that their struggle had just begun once they got back to shore. Blamed for the wreck, they fought back and broke a code of silence that had covered up sloppy ship inspections for decades and revealed the flaws in old World War II rust buckets that were still at sea long past their functional lifetime.

A story of adventure at sea and survival in the court systems, Until the Sea Shall Free Them takes on the issues The Perfect Storm presented.

    " The sinking of the M/V Marine Electric and the resulting legal battle to change the law and marine safety enforcement. Sort of a US Coast Guard history. Good read for a professional mariner. "

    " An in-depth account of the sinking of a merchant ship off the coast of Virginia and the subsequent investigation. Written by an investigative journalist, it is an indictment of the U.S. Merchant Marine, greedy shipowners, and lax enforcement of safety regulations by the Coast Guard. "

    " I knew almost nothing about the Merchant Marine when I started this book and learned an incredible amount about how shipping works. A fascinating subject and some very impressive people were involved in making the business better and safer. "
