Love boating? Thinking of "moving up" to a larger boat? Then let a veteran boater tell you, in a humorous way, of his first time experiences in the preparation, maintenance and piloting of a larger vessel and traveling to destinations on Long Island, Fisher's Island, and Block Island Sounds. Taken from journal entries, this boating primer and adventure story covers the good and the bad, the beautiful and the ugly of a couple's experiences in moving up to a bigger boat. Beginning with the notion, acquisition, preparation, ultimately the excitement of cruising and exploring various boating destinations, husband and wife found refreshingly new experiences. Lubber's Log has tons of information for new mariners, and for those that have already moved up, some very relatable stories of the silly mistakes we all make along the way. Boating from the age of five in small craft of all kinds, shapes, and sizes under 18 feet, William L. Gills is a Connecticut native who makes his home in West Hartford with his wife Candace, and spends much of his time in Mystic, Connecticut and environs. New to the writers craft he's discovered the rewarding relaxation this art form affords. He's musical by nature, a capable guitar player and drummer who enjoys the outdoors, especially his time on, under and in the water. A former recreational water skier, scuba diver, and fisher-man, swimmer and avid boater, he currently plies his interest in larger leisure craft, reaping a harvest of fun and pleasure on the water. Oh yes, stay tuned, he says he'll be "moving up" again soon.
