About the Author:

Herb Payson gave up his job as a jazz pianist in the Los Angeles area for the cruising life in 1973. Since then, he and his wife Nancy have become well-known habituÂŽs of the many ports of call between California and New Zealand. A contributing editor to SAIL magazine, Herb is the author of Blown Away and Advice to the Sealorn.

Review:

Contains more of the same jolly cruising in the South Pacific as did Payson's previous book, Blown Away. There's also more of the same self-deprecating humor, more good seafearing yarns and anecdotes. Yet beneath the subterfuge of a raconteur and comic is a man who knows the way of a yacht, a man who is mechanically and navigationally competent, and one who, I'll bet, is cool in a jam though more often than not, he depicts himself as a clown. For the vicarious voyager, this is an amusing and informative read; for someone bound to the South Pacific, a vade mecum. (Sail Magazine)
