The Minimum Boat
A wonderfully humourous collection of short chapters on such diverse subjects as plumbing, anchoring and personal buoyancy. The main link is Dave and others like him, the proud owners of large craft and the author on ‘Daisy’ his ultimate miminum boat. Each chapter makes us crease with laughter while reminding us about the simple pleasures of sailing that the founders of the LSC enjoyed before the introduction of so much electronic equipment. An added bonus are Mike Peyton’s cartoons!
Yes, I have sailed a much smaller minimum boat than ‘Daisy’ but in spite of the ability to trail her everywhere, I am extremely glad my present craft is large enough to sleep aboard!
