Bennett Marine Video has produced a documentary on the life of one of the most famous 19th-century sea captains on his epic solo voyage around the world. The career of Joshua Slocum collapsed with the end of the Age of Sail until he was given a 100-year-old rotting oyster boat and decided to use it to become the first person to sail around the world alone. The 30-minute DVD is available for $34.95.
