Jim's Bahamas Adventure: Small Boats vs. the Devil's Triangle
by Stephen L. Blain
This is the story of Jim Spade’s humorous adventures and misadventures with eleven co-workers from an automobile plant in Michigan. They took a twenty-one-foot and two twenty-three-foot boats across fifty-nine miles of open ocean to Freeport, Grand Bahamas. They had to boat through the Devil’s Triangle in stormy weather to get to the islands. Most of them had never been on a boat trip before, but they were learning fast. They stayed on the island beaches sometimes, and at the hotel docks at other times. They went scuba diving for fun and lobsters in the clear waters. They already knew how to party; sometimes they partied more than they should have. They went to the casino and partied hard there. They tried deep-sea fishing, and water skiing in the ocean. Only time will tell if they had learned enough to survive their trip in the Devil’s Triangle.
