Do you have the "cruising dream"? - the one where you buy a boat, sever home ties, and sail over the horizon, relying on your resources and gut instinct?
If so, let this book be your reality check. Know that sparkling seas, pleasant downwind sails, and sundowners on the deck can exist - but also be ready for unforgiving reefs, unpleasant dismastings, greedy officials, terrifying storms, sinkings, sickness, nervous and engine breakdowns, loneliness, deaths, and dog fights. If you're the reluctant sailing companion, this book contains your "I-told-you-so" ammunition. Written with honesty and humor, Captain Jack paints a true picture of the cruising lifestyle, overflowing with adventure and determination - and not for the faint of heart.
