**Also archived along with this show is a show from September 2003, about which Mike writes: “This 9/03 BoatTalk episode is a classic – and about the best sea story you’ll ever hear. Present day Penobscot Bay Pilot Skip Strong describes his rescue of a tug & barge in a mayday situation in a tropical storm off Florida with a loaded oil tanker. This unusual situation resulted in the largest marine salvage award in history because of the very special cargo in the barge. Highly recommended BoatTalk’s greatest hit”
