Pacific Ocean, Flying Fish, 1982

Pacific Ocean, Flying Fish, 1982 - In 1982, I sailed with Boysie Day of Point Richmond, California across the Pacific Ocean from San Francisco to New Guinea. This was my first great adventure. The ocean, I learned, was still a place of mystery in a world modern man pretended it had conquered and understood. For me, many mysterious and curious personal discoveries awaited. One was the flying fish. Although I had heard of the Flying Fish, I did not know if it was fact or fiction. On this day, one flew into the boat! When traveling across the ocean on a small sailing craft, flying fish can be seen exiting the water, flying fifty feet or more and returning to the deep blue. Once, in Honiara, fish flew into the back cabin of the Sugar Bear, Boysie's ketch, when a predator entered their school.
