TC is a haven for water activities. You can enjoy this on the beach or
on your boat or anywhere... You will, however, think differently about
seeing the Coast Guard boats or choppers go by after regarding this
detailed story about the harrowing rescue of fishermen in the Berring
Sea. Cool off with this true adventure, but give yourself some time, you
won't put it down till you find out what happens. You'll then find a
"Coastie" and thank them for their service.

Deadliest Sea by Kalee Thompson is the spellbinding true story of the greatest rescue in U.S. Coast Guard history. Recounting the tragic sinking of the fishing trawler, Alaska Ranger, in the Bering Sea and its remarkable aftermath in March 2008, Deadliest Sea is real life action and adventure at its finest. The full story of an amazing rescue—where extraordinary courage, ingenuity, will, and technology combined in one of the most remarkable maritime feats ever recorded—has never been told before now. It’s The Perfect Storm meets Deadliest Catch.
