Jackie, the Mexican girl, will pour my coffee while standing so close that I can smell the cotton fibers in her blouse. As I leave, she wishes me luck. She knows I’m going to need it.Aboard the fishing vessel Kismet everything is ready.

We are crossing the Pacific in search of tuna that were in previous years unknown to the American fleet.The year is 1988 and by now it’s well known that a large school of albacore tuna can be found in the South Pacific Ocean a thousand miles south of Tahiti. The canneries in American Soma promise a dollar a pound for these fish: the highest prices every paid for albacore tuna. Except for the few who hold net permits, commercial fishing is at an all time low. These two factors (the poor fishing in the States and the news of the fish in the South Pacific) have led to the formation of a loose confederation of fishing vessels.

Their homeports span the West Coast from Alaska to Mexico. At immense financial and physical risk, this small fleet will converge on a remote area in the Southern Ocean.John Goth is the owner of the fishing vessel Kismet- Jeremy is a young man from a prominent San Diego family—I’m going too. The three of us make up the entire crew.On the first of December 1988, we leave San Diego for French Polynesia the first leg of our journey.

In Tahiti I meet Ubangi, a young girl born in Africa of French and Burmese parents. She makes her living selling homemade medicine out of the back of her step van. After returning from the South Pacific, I travel to the Caribbean. Not finding what I’m looking for, in a sinking sailboat, I cross the Atlantic.This two hundred and seventy page narrative spans one year and eight countries. Wandering Waters is a true story.
