About The Author
"People get introduced to boating in a variety of ways, and I would venture to guess that most of those ways involve having the veil lifted by a friend or family member. I myself was introduced to the world of freedom-on-water by both the former and the latter.
It all started with a lifelong friendship - one that saw two boys growing up on the water around the South Shore of Massachusetts. Swimming, fishing, cruising, tow-surfing, and too much partying were had by all on boats from a 7' Zodiac to a 34' Silverton sportfisher. My friend's father taught us all of the things to do - and not to do - in a flurry of memories that involve the usual boating-bug-biting-themes: sunsets, laughter, solitude and bliss.
Fast forward a few years and I get pulled to Connecticut, where, (lo-and-behold!) there is a thriving boating community! I never thought I'd find it, but I did - a glorious collection of salty mariners (and lots of newbies too), just ready to be my new community."
