Synopsis

'We didn't want to be wiping porridge off the walls - we wanted places no rougher than a farm pond. The silence in these places was complete - so much so that we found ourselves speaking in whispers.'

Many sailors dream of a quiet life living aboard a classic yacht. Few reach that dream following the same path as Justin Ruthven-Tyers and his wife. After a fire destroyed everything they owned, the couple decided to build their own classic sailing yacht and live aboard in the wilds of Scotland - up creeks, in rocky pools, in lovely desolate places whose descriptions would make any armchair traveller ache to go there.

They started their new life by felling trees for the timber they needed to build their boat, the first unusual step in their unique story. With a wonderful turn of phrase, Justin's humorous narrative will engage those who dream of living a similar lifestyle, and inspire those motivated to attempt it.
