Book Summary

The four mast steel hulled sailship, Sindia, was built in 1887 by Harland & Wolff, of Belfast, Ireland. In 1901, Sindia, captained by a Scottish Master, and First and Second Mates, shipwrecked along the coastline of Ocean City, NJ., as a result of a major storm, along with the ship's crew of 30 merchant sailors. Sindia was homeward bound following a round the world voyage to Shanghai and Kobe, and was ladened with beautiful hand painted curios and wares, all made in either China or Japan. The wreck of Sindia and her crew and cargo, some think a portion of which were stolen valuables, has, nearly 115 years later, remained Ocean City's famous shipwreck. Some of the salvaged cargo and other artifacts are on display at the Ocean City Historical Museum. The uniqueness of this historically based book resides in the fact that the story has never been written, and, nearly 115 years later, it is time the story be told. You are about to read a thoroughly researched historical novel, laced with elements of fiction to enhance the story, written with a depth designed to inform and educate the curious. Without this work, many details hidden in history would remain in obscurity. Step into the shoes of Master Allan MacKenzie and walk through a portal in time. Weigh anchor, op the riggin, and hoist and set your sails mate! I hope you enjoy the journey. It's a fascinating story. It's the story of Sindia, the Final Voyage.
