High adventure on a small budget is Charles
Stock's philosophy as he cruises his midget 16-foot gaff-rigged sailing
cruiser Shoal Waters on the Thames Estuary, with 68,000 miles logged
since 1963. No engine, no electronics. The art of pottering, taking to
its zenith, and happiness achieved with great simplicity. There's a
lesson here for all of us who hanker after the South Seas!. PB. 238pp.
