Introducing The Captain. So, who am I? And what am I doing tapping on this keyboard and publishing a glossy magazine instead of chasing Tahitian women, hand-lining giant sharks from a creaking timber ship and drinking rum from an old tin cup?
I’m looking for stories, real stories of awesome adventures and dynamite destinations. I’m looking for the craftsmen who hone their skills in the shadows of life. And I’m looking for quality products that don’t get the kudos they deserve.
I have a crew to help me tell the tales - a crew that hasn’t been bribed with power, money or free product. They’re a crew who tell it like it is, and have the scars to prove it - mostly well-hidden by large beards and iridescent polarised sunglasses. Their tattoos also tell the stories.
The Captain magazine isn’t full of glossy ads - it doesn’t even have editorial pretending not to be ads. It probably would have, if only the crew hadn’t spent so much time hunting good stories, such as the origin of Australia’s most-famous hull, the 233. It might have been a total sell-out, if only the crew wasn’t busy shining a light on such legends as Harry Foullas and his amazing boat Triple H; or Damian Oswald and his very cool fish rubbing. And if they weren’t holding their breath underwater for so long to spear a 13kg snapper, then maybe it would have been just another mundane magazine.##
