Review

"Unless you are already living on the uttermost boundaries of ... Western Civilization, you should read ... Hill's book with greatest caution."  —Tom Cunliffe

About the Author

This book could make armchair sailors run away to sea.
It all seems so matter-of-fact and straightforward, why would you choose to live through winter when you can build a safe, seaworthy, plywood boat and cruise South for the Winter and North for the Summer. Or even, when folks ask you what you did for your summer holidays, this year instead of talking about the BBQ in the back yard, you could mention a trip to the West Indies.
Book is written with a curious blend of British charm and wit. Not a comedy, but still funny in parts. For those who sigh and say they wish they could just sail away....give them this book.

I'm going to have to deviate a bit from the general consensus of these reviews. The book is good. It's interesting. It contains a lot of information, some of it is plain common sense and some of it is insightful and clever.
I wish they had written more on the actual building of their boat, but I guess that would break away from the topic.
Would you visit a neighboring anchored boat with the intention of getting a meal?
If you can tolerate the authur's rambling style and frequent use of British expressions which at times I didn't understand, I think you'll get something out of the book. (Did you know the British term for kerosene is parafin?)
HOWEVER, please do some more research before you follow their lead. For example, I do not want to trigger a rescue operation at sea anymore than the Hills do. But that's what the rescuers are for and that's what we pay taxes for. If all else fails, don't hesitate to call for help.
Some of their ways can either get you killed or in big trouble. For example, at the time of the writing, they did not have an EPIRB, or a life raft, or even liability insurance. Imagine what kind of problems you face if you're adrift or your home built dory holes the hull of a ...passagemaker?
It's a good read, entertaining and interesting. But not a book that I would consider packed with wisdom.

A dated (2001) but pleasant book to read. A worthwhile read but not the reference I was looking for.
