The list author says: "IÂve spent far too much time around boats and trucks, sailing, working on engines and generally not behaving according to expectations. A life-long resident of the Garden State, I live in northeast New Jersey with my husband, three dogs and assorted cats. Growing up aboard boats, I've sailed the regionÂs waters single-handed since childhood, and done a little of everything from boat restorations and repairs to managing a boatyard and working in commercial marine transportation. My work has been published in Boating on the Hudson, Offshore Magazine and DIY Boat Owner Magazine. I divide my time between working on Annabel Lee, my 32' trawler, and writing. IÂm currently moving ahead with the next book in this series, No Wake Zone."
"An excellent book to have aboard, offers excellent cruising tips while providing fascinating history and details into the region's waters from the Hudson River down to the Delaware Bay. Don't leave the dock without it!"
"A fun little tale of assorted characters, and you get to cheer for the crazy dude. Crazy dudes, actually. There are several, and they're more likable than the (in theory) sane characters. My kind of story."
