Held captive by people who wanted to use his boat to conceal drugs, Alan had to find a way to save himself. What had started as a simple cruise had turned into a nightmare!
Alan had escaped their grasp and barricaded the door to his stateroom. Without the key to the engine, the men couldn’t go anywhere. He hunkered down and waited the men out.
Finally, he heard them as they sailed away from his vessel. Imagine his excitement to look out the window and see the Coast Guard arriving, just like the cavalry of those old Westerns!
