Description
Pete Erickson has long dreamed of sailing a small boat to Alaska. When he retires, he acts on his dream. It turns into a nightmare when his boyhood rival's jealousy turns into venom. Slen Kuskitt has become a drug lord. He has temporarily abandoned a 42-foot ketch. In it he has hidden a dead body and drugs worth four million dollars. The boat gathers barnacles and moss. Pete buys it at sheriff's auction and reclaims it. Friends trick him into naming it Sexy Lady. Nothing will stop Kuskitt from recovering his hoard and sinking Pete. Ignorant of the drugs hidden in his boat, Pete sets sail for the North with his Lab, Jake, a one-man crew, a woman passenger who looks more like a hot-blooded Italian than anybody named Johnson, and her Siamese cat named Sapphire, a cat with more teeth, more claws, more tail than it needs, and that hates dogs. The voyage becomes a torturous game of hide-and-seek. By plane and fast boat, Kuskitt chases Pete down. Pete ducks into and sneaks out of hidden coves along the Inside Passage.

Summary
Pete Erickson has long dreamed of sailing a small boat to Alaska. When he retires, he acts on his dream. It turns into a nightmare when his boyhood rival's jealousy turns into venom.

Excerpt
“Mind you now, Marty, you got to hang on for dear life. I knew a fellow once, poor Ansel Wiggins, he got drawed right in the water by a big halibut that weighed a thousand pounds. The fish took the bait, down went the end of the pole, and over the side went poor Ansel. He had store teeth and they fell out when that halibut took the pole down and when Ansel grabbed for his teeth they went over the side and so did the pole and so did Ansel. Teeth and all. We never saw him again. “No sir, he disappeared complete. The last thing we saw of him was his heels. So I’ll tie you to the boat, Marty. We don’t want to lose you.” He took a length of rope an inch thick, wrapped it around Marty’s middle and snubbed it off to a stanchion with a bowline knot. “Now that will keep you safe in the boat, anyhow,” he said. Behind Marty’s back, he winked at Milly. She kissed his cheek. The kiss reminded him of the first time he’d ever been kissed. “A woman in Portland Oregon one time,” he said, “before the war, when I shipped on a tanker for Shanghai--” He no more than started this story when Marty’s pole jerked. “Hang on, son! They don’t have speed, but they’ve got power. It’s no different from pulling up a barn door. Hang on!”
