Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Imbued with a sea captains outlook on life and the optimistic attitudes found in overcoming obstacles—from battling childhood polio to preparing and maintaining a 100-year-old wooden schooner—this autobiography regales the life of a leading windjammer captain and tugboat skipper. Packed with wonderful characters and salty adventures—from a mutinous cook to sailing through noreasters—this inspirational life story takes readers from ports of call in Florida and the Bahamas to the foggy shores of Maine.
