Synopsis: The author and his First Class Mate have provided those who may be new to boating with hundreds of tips to help make their cruising experiences safe and pleasurable -Jennifer Castle Field, President, Chapman School of Seamanship"Prestegaard's writing has style and elegance, and a way of stoking the imagination. If you're one of the old or idle retirees looking for a change in your routine, read Pete's (Not So) Old Men and the Sea."-Ron & Eva Stob, Founders, America's Great Loop Cruisers' Assoc."A fun read about the joys and memorable experiences of the cruising lifestyle. It should inspire others to venture off on this journey of a lifetime."-Bill Parlatore, Editor in Chief, PassageMaker Magazine"Enjoyed the read. Entertaining and informative."-Rich Wall, Boat US/West Marine"It's simply Cruising 101"-Jim Meier, Sea Ray Boats Inc.(Not So) Old Men and the Sea covers portions of six years of the author's life, a time when he, his wife and sea dog Bingo experienced first-hand lessons as they prepared for, then negotiated, the legendary Great Circle/Loop of Eastern, Canadian, Midwestern and Southern waters aboard their 38' cruiser, The Family Fjord. In all, they transited over 100 locks, 6000 nautical miles and one over-the-road haul across Wisconsin.NSOM can easily be a blueprint for the novice cruiser who dreams of taking extended coastal or river voyages "on his own bottom." It starts with the glories of cruising and rapidly gets specific about boat, power, options, human factors and experiences, coupled with vignettes of what everyday distance cruising is like. The book features an overriding focus on safety, and author Pete Prestegaard also helpfully includes money-saving tips throughout.

About the Author: Mr. Prestegaard?s seafaring blood, possibly a Norwegian legacy, was held in check while he carved out several successful business careers. By 1997, however, the call ?to sea? became irresistibly strong, resulting in the travels and adventures found in this work.

Book Description iUniverse, United States, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Not So) Old Men and the Sea covers portions of six years of the author s life. This was a time when he, his wife and seadog Bingo experienced first-hand lessons as they prepared for and then negotiated, the legendary Great Circle of Eastern, Canadian, Midwestern and Southern waters aboard their 38 cruiser, The Family Fjord. In all, they transited over 100 locks and 6000 nautical miles. Not So) Old Men is a blueprint for the novice cruiser who dreams of taking extended coastal or river voyages on his own bottom. It starts with the glories of cruising and rapidly gets specific about boat, power and options. There is an overriding focus on safety. (Not So) Old Men and the Sea presents a step by step to determine how, with what equipment, and where you will cruise. Author Pete Prestegaard thoughtfully includes money-saving tips. After examining steps leading to the launch of a newly acquired craft, including example names which struck his fancy, the author discusses crew, various events which could occur, river running, the impact of weather, and boat care. The book wraps up with entertaining letters home, and illustrative photos taken along the way. Log entries, summaries of desirable cruiser characteristics, a planned itinerary, checklists, perspectives from the first mate, and references for further research wrap up this valuable work.
