Confessions of a Boat Lovers Wife or: Is a Marriage Like This Worth Saving? Hardcover – January 1, 1987
From Publishers Weekly
The reluctant, landlubber wife is a familiar feature in boating literature, so Lewis is hardly a stranger. The difference here is that the family crafts have been power cruisers, so she was spared the trauma of learning to sail. She quickly learned the ABC's of boating; also the E'sextras, equipment, expenses; and R'srepairs, replacements, reimbursements. Her system of providing meals at sea is to cook at home, wrap the food in heavy insulation and carry it to the boat. Lewis, author of Prime Time, describes the boating life on Long Island Sound, along with "port sports," "dock flocks" and the boats that never leave their moorings. These stories, plus accounts of cruising adventures, add up to frothy entertainment.

From Library Journal
This book is another in a spate of humorous discussions of life with a dedicated boater. The adventures and misadventures to be encountered on a boatany kind of boatare endless both in number and variety. Lewis is an entertaining writer and carries off her descriptions of a Florida realtor sailing a new boat with no experience and a millionaire industrialist's adventure on a peaceful lake in Northern Minnesota with a deft touch. Her affection for her husband and boating comes through clearly. This book is for nonsailors, since the Lewis family is hooked on boats with motors. Recommended, especially if you need nonsailing boating books.Susan Ebershoff-Coles, Indianapolis-Marion Cty. P.L.
