This is one of the best stories about powerboat cruising that I have ever read. -- Joseph F. Janson, Seaworthy Publications, Nov. 1998
From the Publisher
"Honey, Let's Get a Boat..." won first place in the Travel Book category in the 1999 North American Travel Journalists Association Awards Competition.
It is hard to find a group of cruising skippers today that doesn't include someone who has just completed, is planning to make, or knows a person who has just made the Great Loop trip. (From Waterway Guide-Great Lakes 1994 Edition article featuring Walter Cronkite)
And there's hardly an issue of a magazine that doesn't include travel adventures of someone cruising America along the water's edge. Every year hundreds of boaters complete the Great Loop Cruise while thousands more dream of doing it in their lifetime. Many wait until retirement, while others bail out at an earlier age to embark on a lifestyle where lawnmowers don't exist and the sun always sets over sparkling water.
Honey, Let's Get a Boat... is for the hopeless romantic as well as the serious boater eager to learn about America's Great Loop (or Great Circle) trip. Honey.... also appeals to the suburban banker and the corporate executive eager to leave their jobs for adventure aboard boats.
