It's Christmas 1951, and on the Atlantic the freighter FLYING ENTERPRISE is in trouble. She's been hit by a rogue wave, had her hull cracked, and, with only the captain and an assistant on board, tries to make her way to a safe port. Frank Delaney seems to delight in bringing listeners this saga. He has a cultured voice with a bit of a brogue, facility with foreign words, good pacing, and the ability to make the day-to-day operations of a freighter interesting. He changes tone for reports and interviews so the long narration doesn't get boring. The ship didn't make it, but Captain Carlsen's efforts earned him a ticker-tape parade in New York.
