About this title

Synopsis:

Fred did not die on his island, another heart attack did not happen. He had plenty of money and maybe, even some life time left. Fred made up his mind; he would go up and down the waterway searching for his lost boat, the "MOLLY BROWN". She had to be hidden very well, no one has seen her. With his old skiff he uses the current to drift south to a town. He rides a bus to Charleston, has a shootout with a black dope peddler that leaves him with drugs and a lot of cash. He buys a boat that he can maneuver by himself, yet big enough to live comfortable aboard. With a new young "boat bum" and her little boy, he is again having boating enjoyment. Terry tells him of a catamaran sail boat that is peddling drugs, and is about to come into port to unload. Fred boards the drug boat, to get rid of the drugs he had on his boat. The deal misfires and Fred ends up with more drugs and cash aboard his boat. He finds that he has incurred the wrath of a crooked Custom Officer and his partner. They had planned a drug bust of their own. Fred and his new boat the "MOLLY TWO" escapes to go north to find his old hidden dope burial ground, to hide this dope. He had plans to clear his boat of any incriminating evidence. Fred is almost buried alive in the new sand silt that has been pumped to over fill his islands hiding place. His stubborn insistence not to quit, sustained him. He lived to find his stash and offloads the dope. With only the money aboard, he resumes his searching for the "MOLLY BROWN". Stopped by the crooked Custom Officers he is physically abused in their anger. To save his own life he has another shoot out, and is victorious. This is the story of Fred's new adventures.

About the Author:

I was born near a lighthouse far out at sea on January 20, 1913. I must have heard the ocean roar and heard it pounding on the shore. Eight summer's came and with it a big three-mast schooner. Prohibition was the name of the game. I was at the tiller, far at sea and my father was out from sampling the tea; I was the youngest rum runner of them all. I needed all that I could earn to support a pretty nineteen year old wife and home; 10-27-1931 we married and bought property in Milbridge, Maine. Vera Alley Kelley and I were married for 65 memorable years. I was a rigger at the Boston Navy Yard during the attack on Pearl Harbor, 12-7-1941; I also worked on "OLD IRONSIDES". South Portland's West yard in Maine, where I worked as a "pusher rigger", I helped build and steered Liberty Ships for Captain Litchfield at all of the harbor trial test runs. I moved to North Carolina to enjoy my boat and the weather, I developed a small marine railway yard in Harkers Island near the Outer Banks. There in 1969 I got a call; The "BIG BAD JOHN" had run aground. I was recommended to Jimmy Dean as the right licensed captain to pilot her to Florida. Later I was hired to Captain the "M.V. MOUNT HOPE" for cruises from Rhode Island to Canada. The forty five foot ketch the "FROLIC", I bought for my own. The "FROLIC" was berthed at Morehead City close to my home. The last 25 years I have written of experiences of my wonderful lifetime. I am now 98 years old and still going strong; I now reside on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina with my family. Capt. Gardner Martin Kelley
