If I could do anything right now, what would it be? It was that simple question that began an adventure of a lifetime, leading Merton to quit his job, leave everything he'd ever worked for, and pursue his lifelong dream of sailing the South Pacific. But just when he thought he was done working, reality reared its ugly head. Merton soon learned that while dreaming was one thing, bringing the dream to life was quite another. He had no boat, no experience as a sailor, and no clue how to navigate the challenges ahead. What he did have was the idealistic optimism that comes with inexperience; after all, how hard could it really be? In his revealing and humorous novel, Boat Works, author Tony Disanto takes a satirical look at the circumstances that can overcome even our best efforts in life. Unwittingly, Merton believed he could escape the absurdities of modern society by sailing into the sunset, only to find that life's difficulties are hard to escape. Boat Works takes readers on a hilarious voyage filled with big dreams, frequent disappointments, and a determination unlike any other. Merton is intent on conquering the oceans, but along the way, he discovers that the greatest satisfaction and happiness in life may come hidden within our greatest losses. Author Tony Disanto has been venturing out to sea since childhood. He has sailed across the Atlantic Ocean alone, east-bound and west-bound. He has also sailed the Caribbean Islands, from Barbados to Belize. Whenever he can get away from work as an engineer, he prefers to drop anchor in the calm and tranquil waters of the Bahamas, spending the winter months reading, writing, and exploring the more remote out-islands.

Boat noodling. Boat lovers suffer universally from this benign affliction. In its mildest form, boat noodling is nothing more than wondering why that sloop in the next slip is faster than yours. In a more significant manifestation it could mean serious daydreaming--drifting off for extended periods, sketching design ideas on the back of an envelope. Chances are, if you've picked up this book just to see what's in it, you're beyond help. Naval architect Dave Gerr offers the perfect antidote, a browser's reference to understanding how boats tick: all you've ever wanted to know about boats--power and sail, racer and cruiser; dinghy and motoryacht. In the clear, friendly, nontechnical style that has made his column for Offshore magazine so enduring and popular, Gerr explains everything from how thick a hull should be to why one sailboat tips less than another, from choosing an engine to designing a rig for your trawler yacht, from building a dinghy to simple rules of thumb for dozens of design quandaries. Gerr writes for the boat noodler in all of us--those seriously interested in learning and dreaming about all types of watercraft. There is no better way to become a better sailor, equipped to handle any contingency. And there's no better place to start than right here.

Since the 1830s when the first hints of permanent settlement appeared on the banks near the mouth of the Saginaw River, the river and bay have supported the busy traffic of a major Great Lakes seaport, the humming saws of hundreds of lumber mills, the waves caused by countless vessel launches, and the many other sounds, sights, and smells indicative of industry and innovation. Bay City and West Bay City became major players in the lumbering, shipping, and shipbuilding industries on the Great Lakes from the mid-1800s into the 19th century. Indeed, innovation and perseverance have been the keys to Bay County’s world-class maritime industry and culture that are still apparent today.
