From the Back Cover
Tom and Mel Neale left their 9 to 5 world nearly two decades ago and never looked backed. Here's everything you need to follow them: choosing the right boat; preparing the crew and boat; provisioning for long-term cruising; raising--and educating--kids; getting along in close quarters; earning a living--and how to hold on to the money; keeping in touch; what to expect in the cruising life, and how to handle it; learning what you can leave behind; making the ocean your backyard.
