Imagine running away to sea without giving up your day job!

In Floating Point, the author and her family seek to shorten a daunting commute to Silicon Valley by moving to a boat. After purchasing an elderly Chris-Craft, the family hoists anchor for a voyage across the San Francisco Bay, but the journey turns out to be far longer and richer. Floating Point chronicles an adventure lived beneath the radar of suburban life as the new owners of the Egret learn the ropes and are eventually transformed by their life on the water just off Silicon Valley.

This travel memoir explores the waterfront with zest, humor, and occasional haunting beauty as a mid-life fantasy collides with practical realities.

Share the adventure.
