This book is dedicated to all my friends in Oriental who have, over the years, cheered and jeered my mis-adventures including, but not limited to; Danny, Bill, Linda, Simon, Buck, Dave, Ralph, Wally, Sue, Knute, Sonny, Barb, Bob, Peter, Jay, Bert and, of course, John Farmer at Camp Don Lee who allowed me to park my boat on top of his canoe dock.—EJ
A Little Inspiration From a Fictional Boat Bum
“The first rule of navigation is never drive the boat where the birds are walking.” —Travis McGee
A Little Illumination on the Places I Sailed
In this book you'll sail to Oriental, New Bern, Ocracoke, Beaufort, Cape Lookout, Wrightsville Beach (in North Carolina), Key West, the Bahamas, and numerous small islands struggling to remain afloat. (These I discovered with the keel of my vessel.)
A Little Confrontation With My Crew
Crew "Combatibility" can wreck a voyage. Read how my crew dealt with their bumbling, bungling, but adventurous captain.
A Word from the Founder of The Cruisersnet.
I had the good fortune to become a regular reader of "Hard Aground with Eddie" during his years as a columnist for Carolina Cruising Magazine. Eddie's extraordinary talent as a nautical writer grew with each issue and eventually his column became one of the most popular features of the magazine. (I like to think my Carolina cruising guides were THE most popular feature.
I deeply commend the various Hard Aground columns collected in these book to cruisers. Perusing these pages will, I have no doubt, make your time on the water, or even your time in the armchair; a happier and far richer experience.All of us who participate in the cruising lifestyle can be very thankful that Eddie has "sounded" the shoals and sandbars of the Carolina coast to such an extent that no further coastal exploration of submerged islands is necessary.
All that is required is to read and heed his tales of woe and be grateful it is Eddie who is Hard Aground and not you or I! --Claiborne S. Young [1951-2014]
