How many times have you had that overpowering urge to leave it all behind and sail off to a tropical island? The desire of the ordinary landlubber to go to sea is as old as mankind itself. Here is the true story of how my wife and I became captured by the powerful allure of the sea. This is book one of a four book series. 'Quest and Crew' begins hours before a hurricane of unimaginable destructive force obliterates the south shore of Grenada. Luckily, Quest survives without a scratch. It’s a story about how life's many twists and turns, fortune and disaster, can change your path but make you stronger. In chapter three you will discover how Quest gained a new lease on life with a complete retrofit in the backwoods of our home in North Carolina. Soon you will be off to North Palm Beach, Florida. On a clear starry night, we leave America behind and sail over the horizon on a hope enveloped by a dream. We are at the beginning of our new adventure. Sailing and anchoring one island at a time, we earn our stripes the hard way as we cruise through the northern Bahamas. ‘Quest and Crew’ is a glimpse into the powerful attraction of sailboats and sapphire water. It is all about the joy of success as well as what it takes to overcome the occasional disaster. From beginning to end, the book is about transforming a rookie crew and beautiful old boat into a sailing adventure. Come for the hurricane, stay for the story.

Book Description Buddha Bee Publishers. Paperback. Condition: New. 224 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.2in. x 0.6in.Quest and Crew is an autobiographical memoir. It is a classic adventure set in paradise aboard one of Canadas best built ocean cruising sailboats, the Bayfield 36. The book is the true story of how a husband and wife became captivated by the dream of sailing the blue waters of the Caribbean. Their first obstacle was the fact that they didnt own a sailboat. Their greatest challenge was a profound lack of sailing skills. Quest and Crew is all about overcoming lifes challenges and following ones dreams. Before I called my wife to suggest that we risk our fate to wind and wave, neither one of us had ever set foot on a sailboat. In the fall of 1999 I was sitting at the computer in my study when I came across an article Live in the Caribbean for 15, 000 a year. This seed of an idea quickly took root. I immediately fell under the spell of warm tropical places and exotic intriguing ports of call at a most agreeable price. Armed with a persuasive argument and the promise of tropical sunsets, I finally convinced Wendy to make a very big lifestyle change. Within two months of reading the article we had purchased the perfect forty foot blue water sailboat in Florida by the name of Quest. Quest is a heavy full keeled cutter rigged sloop with classic teak styling designed by Hayden Gozzard in the mid 1980s. Quest and Crew is a humorous and inspiring account of transforming a beautiful classic sailing yacht and her rookie crew into a well seasoned team prepared to meet the dangers of the open ocean. The story opens with a 150 mph Category 5 hurricane approaching the south coast of Grenada. The storm would make a direct hit on the marina where Quest was moored. David and Wendy miraculously survive one of the fiercest storms ever to hit the Caribbean while aboard Quest. Hurricane Ivan was also the occasion where Quest proved just how lucky she is. Through a series of unbelievable coincidences, Quest makes it through the ultimate storm with barely a scratch. The narrative of the story then circles back to the day when David first broached Wendy with the crazy idea of buying a sailboat and sailing to paradise. Follow David and Wendy as they search for and buy the perfect cruising boat in Ft. Lauderdale. The real hard work begins with their early attempts at retrofitting a classic yacht, piece by piece. After David puts the pieces of Quest together again, they begin their initiation into the cruising life style in Florida, the Bahamas, and the Caribbean. Quest and Crew is a fast paced adventure story set in paradise and told with humor and pathos. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback.
