"Kawabunga's South Seas Adventure proves again that you do not need a six digit-priced yacht to enjoy blue water cruising. In their sturdy 20-foot yacht, the Dewells did the California-Tahiti-Hawaii circuit with as much grace as any gold-plater. Places they visited and sailing challenges they met seem unchanged over the years suggesting that, unlike Alexander the Great's comment on there being no more lands to conquer, there are still waters to conquer by small boat.
Wannabe cruisers can step into the shoes of a plucky sailing couple via this book and learn how to cut the ties that bind them to urban bedlam while the armchair sailor will enjoy a nautical yarn with humor and grit and plenty of characters. You will experience a roller coaster ride of emotions as Charlie and Margaret tackle and overcome family and financial matters and the officialdom of new lands.
If you are not out sailing now, this is your inspiration to go cruising before it is too late." -- Earl Hinz, author of Landfalls of Paradise
"The story of their adventure is told with warmth and humor. . . He calls it as he sees it." -- Santana Magazine
A must read for the small boat cruiser who dreams of the long-haul into paradise. Good read." -- Latitudes & Attitudes
Cruisers considering venturing into blue water aboard a small craft will find Dewell's book invaluable. -- Dorothy Rice Bennett, The Log Newspapers
I could hardly put their book down because it was such an exciting read. -- David C. Henley, Publisher, Lahontan Valley News
