Seaworthy: A Sword Boat Captain Returns To The Sea

In 1997, at the age of 35, Linda Greenlaw captured the attention and interest of the public when Sebastian Junger, author of The Perfect Storm  proclaimed her to be "one of the best sword boat captains, period, on the East Coast." In the movie, Linda is portrayed aboard her boat, the Hannah Boden, by Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio trying to warn her sister vessel,  the Andrea Gail, of the fast approaching storm that would end up taking the lives of all six men aboard the Andrea Gail.

Since then she has written four non-fiction books about her life and travels as a commercial fisherman, two mystery novels, and an awesome cookbook that she co-authored with her mom, Martha Greenlaw. She also stars on the new Discovery Channel series, Swords and is currently out touring to promote her latest non-fiction book Seaworthy: A Sword Boat Captain Returns To The Sea.
