Kretschmer earns your respect, grabs your heart and opens your soul with this book. This guy bares it all. After I read through his 'Used boat notebook' I expected this book to be filled with all the little details I needed to function as a live aboard cruising sailor. It didn't. Instead I sat in the cockpit of John's boat and listened to him tell me a story about people like he and I. From it, I know each step I take closer to my goal is the right step. I'll find the details I need, but they won't amount to the value of this book. This book is so extraordinary I am begging to doubt that he's a better sailor than a writer!

Wow! I picked this book up ona whim and really, really enjoyed it. And I don't even sail! I have two friends at work that DO sail so I leant them the book and the absolutely loved reading about Mr. Kretschemer's adventures. If you like good story telling, this book is for you whether you sail or get seasick in a bathtub.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
