This is not a "disaster at sea" story nor a survival tale. It is the record of nine and a half wonderful years spent cruising in the Pacific. We started in San Francisco with family aboard but after Cabo San Lucas it was just my wife Judy and I. We picked our way along the Pacific Coast, through the "Forgotten Middle" of Central America, and all the way to Ecuador and then across to the Galapagos, the Marquesas, and on through French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, both Samoas, Tonga, and finally north to the Marshall Islands. I include accounts of our inland trips through the Ecuadorian Highlands, the Amazon Basin, Peru, and the Galapagos Islands. I'll show you what cruising in a small yacht is all about - the glory of it all and the nitty-gritty of everyday life afloat. At times we visited some very unusual places and I will share it all with you. We were not on the tourist route. There are no hotels in Penrhyn or Niuatoputapu for instance. My hope is that you will enjoy this book whether you are an "Armchair Sailor," someone who might just sail away eventually, or someone who wants to hear about strange out-of-the-way places. Places such as the Galapagos Islands are frequently written about but I think you will find that it is a very different place when seen from the perspective of a Cruising Boat.
