Elliott Merrick had always wanted to sail the East Coast,
but he needed a boat. Not finding what he wanted, amateur
cruiser Merrick built his own boat-a twenty-foot sailboat
he put together on weekends, in anticipation of the
cruise he'd been dreaming of his entire life. Finally,
after retiring, he and his wife set out on the water.
This splendid narrative recounts Merrick's exciting
journey from novice to accomplished sailor, capturing the
sheer delight of a good day's sail. He describes building
his boat, learning how to anchor in new harbours, and
meeting characters of every sort along the way. Merrick
recounts "the unutterable joy of our good days, when the
bow wave sparkled white, and the sky was so blue you lost
yourself in it."
