Kurzbeschreibung

From collision to mutiny and murder, Marine Captain John De Silva's TROUBLED WATERS sets down with searing honesty the highs and lows of the professional seafarer's life. The land is but a temporary haven in which relationships are made, but the blue sea is where unforgettable events occur and memories are relived. This captivating memoir explores the sheer optimism we human beings have been endowed with to meet the adversities of life head on.



From plagues of cockroaches, engine failures, duplicity and deceit, to Reema, the Guajarati girl who gets pregnant and is subsequently abandoned by her Muslim boyfriend and forced into a lifetime of prostitution, the book explores human life and our relationship with the divine that allows us to steer a steady course through chaos as we head toward a peaceful anchor.



This is the story of a voyage that Captain John de Silva undertakes with all its attendant vicissitudes and death-defying miseries. Yet throughout he never loses his faith in the Lord; never loses that optimism we human beings have been endowed with to balance out fear and despair.



Captain De Silva's odyssey begins in January, 2006, when he assumes command of the ship Cape Agulhas with its Myanmar crew. In his voyage around the coast of Africa, almost everything that can go wrong does. From a seasick cook who can’t cook, officials who demand bribes at every port, and a silent but murderous crew who never obey an order without first having a lengthy conclave among themselves, the Captain faces one test after another--trusting in his faith in God to find his way through.



If you're wondering what a lifetime at sea might be like, you won't want to miss this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Troubled Waters; prepared heart! 23. März 2014
Von David Wilkerson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Captain De Silva's book 'Troubled Waters' was to me an uncommonly honest look at human failure and triumph from individual levels on up. The good Captain clearly does not subscribe to today's "You can't handle the truth!" mentality as he makes it clear that EVERY person must face the truth in time's irresistible flow. This work rates five stars by me because it blends the excitement that so many readers crave in our unexciting lives with the minutia of decision making that we equally wish to avoid. Factually, our challenges in life often occur at the hands of others, and commonly through impersonal or uncaring greed. Captain De Silva's uncommon virtue is his ability to focus the reader's attention on this human characteristic without hypocritical venom. To see corruption covering a land like a flood, the right thing to do is to focus good where you can with full acknowledgment of the source of that good. This he does.
Very recently, one of my aviation students asked me about the duties of a sea-captain. It was my great pleasure to have him obtain this book, for It answers my student better than any other that I am currently aware can. If your interest is not in the sea, but in being a good manager or leader, read this book. If your life consists of dealing with those above you taking unfair advantage of you, read this book. If you are overwhelmed with the feeling that life has not given you what you deserve, read this book. If you believe that every person in authority in any company is only clawing their way up the golden ladder that you will never be allowed to touch; read this book!
5.0 von 5 Sternen and will satisfy anyone’s curiosity of what life at sea is truly ... 8. September 2014
Von Sara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Troubled Waters is a book that explores the ability to be unfailingly optimistic while in the face of adversity. Captain John De Silva’s memoir investigates the highs and lows of life on sea, as well as the result of having a relationship with the divine to guide one through chaos. This book states that our ability to be optimistic and to believe in the divine, are the most important parts of the human experience, and to lose those two qualities could prove to be tragic. This story is gritty, raw, and will satisfy anyone’s curiosity of what life at sea is truly like.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Free-Thinkers Won't Like This. I Didn't. 19. August 2016
Von dbrick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
While Captain De Silva writes well, his focus - as reviewer Wilson Chang accurately observes - is on acting as he thinks God directs him. Thus, this book isn't so much a memoir of being at sea as it is a memoir of De Silva's continual spiritual struggle. This was not (as a seafarer might say) what I signed on for, I did not enjoy it, and I left the ship before the voyage was complete.
