Captain Hugh Mitchell is a Canadian sea captain whose adventures have taken
him around the world numerous times. When Hurricane Hugo was poised to strike
the Eastern Seaboard of the United States near Charleston, South Carolina,
conflicting weather reports sent Captain Hugh headlong into the storm on the
Intracoastal Waterway south of Charleston. His ship breaking up in the fierce
winds and pounding waves, this courageous man made it to shore where he spent
the remainder of the night LASHED TO A TREE to ride out the storm! He has lived
through 13 hurricanes and has lost 2 vessels to shipwreck. Today Captain Hugh
Mitchell can usually be found holding court on the docks of Fish Island Marina
in St. Augustine, Florida. This bronze sculpture will certainly be a
conversation piece no matter where you decide to display it. It captures the
essence of life on the high seas.
