In the Drink: The Boathouse
'This is not an old bar, but it has been very cleverly laid out to induce the illusion of a long collegiate tradition in sculling. There are trophies no one here has won.'
Bruce Bentzman

Otoliths, Icthyology and Fish Slime
Chapter Five
and Chapter Six
'I had never been in a situation where I could not rely on verbal communication for my direction. How could I gain the information I needed to do my job? I found my clues in the sounds and feel of the boat. My senses stayed on heightened awareness, a constant adrenalin rush that exhausted me.'
Dail Bridges
