The Tales of Captain Robbie Mack - Up the Creek His attention wavered. The man was having an epileptic fit right in front of him, no-one else about. And yet his eyes were drawn to that damn chicken stoating around seasick drunk in the shower. Robbie Mack couldn't have been further from being a Captain at this point. He was just a lowly sea cadet. But this incident was just one of many experiences that took him from being a naïve wee lad from the Scottish village of Menstrie to becoming a successful and valued contributor in the global marine industry. Up the Creek takes the reader from 16-year old Robbie's earliest voyage around the world, seasick, homesick and bullied incessantly to attaining the seemingly impossible position of vessel Master. Sailing with shipping lines such as Cunard, P & O, Blue Funnel and many more, these tales will resonate with seafarers around the globe. But the reader doesn't need to be familiar with the marine industry to enjoy the characters in this first of several manuscripts. Like Tosh the schizophrenic cook or the gun-toting Angolan mercenaries. Or Irish Marie who knew how to keep hubby asleep and out of her hair. Sometimes dangerous, occasionally tragic and often hilarious, Robbie's adventures taught him some important life lessons along the way. As a chief engineer said to him, 'Och Captain, I have poot the fire oot but yae need to go easy on the thruster.' With such guidance, how could he fail?
