Captain Ernest Hartling, born in Spanish Ship Bay, Nova Scotia, in 1906, takes us on a voyage through a life crammed with adventure, colour, and excitement.
Ernest Knight Hartling, born a "Bluenose" in Spanish Ship Bay, Nova Scotia, went to sea at the age of eleven, sailing on the graceful "tall ships" of history. He and his wife Mary, currently divid their time between Vermilion Ohio and Fort Myers Beach, Floria.
Jo Kranz, although a reluctant sailor at best, is -nonetheless- irresistibly hooked on sea stories. She is married with four children and lives in Bay Village, Ohio and Boynton Beach, Floria.
