Pilotage Wisdom


by Frank Diegel - published on 1 September 2020 500 -

Let us remind ourselves every day of the principles of safe seamanship!

Routine, negligence or even inexperience are the breeding ground for every disaster.


Daniel Defoe
was an English narrator and novelist and intervened in political and religious disputes of his time with numerous pamphlets. He later added a "De" to his name, which gave his name an aristocratic sound.

He was - among other things - the author of the well-known book "Robinson Crusoe".

Daniel Foe was born the son of James Foe, a wealthy London tallow merchant and member of the "Worshipful Company of Butchers", and his wife Annie. The year and place of birth are not known with certainty. Various sources mention the years 1659 to 1662 as probable. Fore Street, Parish of St. Giles Cripple, London, is generally regarded as his birthplace.
