Introduction My interest in boats started around age 14, when I built a couple of small dinghies and sailed them on local waters. Arthur Ransome's "Swallows and Amazons" books had a huge influence on me. Life interrupted my sailing days, and it wasn't until I was 53 when my interest was rekindled after re-reading "Sailing Alone Around the World" by Joshua Slocum. Since then I've had a succession of craft, including a Montgomery 17, a Lancer 25, a San Juan 24, an Albin Vega 27, and my latest, a 30' Albin Ballad.
