on the flint!!!!

I read a story many years ago, I believe the guy was out of the north shore... boat sank, and he was able to swim to a bouy. it was a large bell bouy I think. anyways he opened the repair hatch in the side of it and crawled he stayed alive in freezing temps by cutting his boots in thin strips and lighting them, keeping the inside of the bouy warm enough to survive.
