Fred Rinne’s astounding tale of seaward psychosis stretches the San Francisco Beat poetry tradition onto a 21st Century collision of Bukowski and Philip K. Dick.

Gorgeously bound by Rinne the book sports fabulous hand-painted covers.

Stenciled airbrushed imagery and screen-printed text lushly illustrate the ‘nautical’-noir mystery of the Amerika Cup Yacht race’s relationship to the Holy Grail and John Frum’s Micronesian, pidgin speaking, anarcho-pirate cargo-cult.
