Adam Randall was thirty years old and he looked like a rock star. He was very handsome, with long blonde hair. He knew most of 11511g613l the other members of the Andrea Gail's crew. He had fished all his life and he knew a lot about fishing boats. When he saw a boat, he knew at once if it was safe or not.
††††††††††† Adam had driven to
††††††††††† "I'm not going out on that boat," he'd said. "I'm not going to take this job."
††††††††††† "What are you saying?" asked his father-in-law in surprise. "You really need this job, Adam.† You haven't worked in three months and you need the money. What's the problem? The Andrea Gail is a very good boat - it's one of the best swordfishing boats on the coast."
††††††††††† "I know that," replied Adam. But I've got a strange feeling about the Andrea Gail. When I was walking around her I felt a cold wind on my skin. I think that none of her crew is going to come back from this trip."

††††††††††† "Are you going to tell them what you think?" he asked.
