Honey, Let's Get A Boat: A Cruising Adventure of America's Great Loop

This is the definitive book that popularized the movement of cruising America’s Great Loop. First published in 1999, it is the story of a couple who encounter each other and a quirky boat as they discover America from the water's edge. Their nautical ineptitude is evident from the beginning, but pulling from their personal and collective strengths, Ron and Eva overcome doubt, a lack of experience and real and imagined horrors. The odyssey is told the way life hands out its portions--sometimes humorously, sometimes tragically, but always memorably.

The writing is light and appealing, but there is a serious strain running through the book for those who relish history and graphic descriptions of the landscape. Eva, astute and attentive to detail, chronicled the adventure and kept an accounting of expenses, equipment and charts. As a result, the appendix which is updated with each printing, is worth the price of the book for anyone interested in planning their own Great Loop Cruise. It contains information on the boat and equipment, costs of the cruise, recommended guidebooks and where to become educated about boating.

It is presently in its seventh printing with over 20,000 copies having been sold. Both the authors are excellent photographers and the book is eye-catching with full color inserts and black and white photographs throughout.

Appendix/Guidebook is updated with each printing and includes:

  • How to buy the boat
  • Financing the cruise
  • Planning the route
  • Choosing equipment
  • Recommended guidebooks
  • Where to get charts and guidebooks                 
  • Information on Customs

Whether you are a hopeless romantic, vicarious traveler, or serious boater, you will find this book both instructive and entertaining.
