"Restoring an old motorboat can mean more than merely refastening planks and revarnishing. When Joe Soucheray came across a fifty-year old Chris Craft, he soon discovered that the boat provided a bridge to his father - a device that kept their relationship going. The love of boats, and of this boat in particular, caused them to reach into the past and sustain the present."
******************
"The beauty of the book is that it totally captures the reader, boat enthusiast or not. Soucheray manages to pull all the right strings, making the reader laugh at his triumphs and some comical failures and cry at the impotence he feels when faced with a young daughter's mysterious illness. It is a gem of a book in it's simple tenderness." -UPI
