He built a boat when he was 13, owned many used ones, and finally in 1990 had a new wooden 24-foot boat hand built for him. From his childhood boat to his latest one, the experience of boating has been an act of liberation, an elemental freedom which provides a theme for this memoir. His affection for old or old-style boats provides a noncompetitive counter to the stress and ambition of academic and business life.

It would be made of wood, with a hull configured like a workboat and a cabin roomy enough to live in for days.

I love how this book brings to life the dilemma of owning and loving boats. I felt for the author when he lost his boats and a celebrated with him when he launched his new pride and joy.

Very funny book

In my opinion this book is not that much about boats or even good stories.
He describes a lot of places in great detail but, mostly, there is nothing happening.
He just paints these overly detailed pictures of places where nothing is happening.

It probably has more appeal to literature buffs than people interested in boats and boating.
It's loaded with literary references and detours into the world of literature.
There were a couple mini stories that pulled me along but, mostly, it was a chore to read.

There were some good things about the book. It is saving me a lot of money because I now longer want to own a big boat.
It really leaves you with a mostly negative view of larger boats.
I rarely got the feeling that he was enjoying his boat addiction. It was more like he suffered his addiction to boats.

I always got the impression that he was working very hard at stretching this book.
I call this "stone soup" writing when an author writes a whole book about essentially nothing.

Maybe it has more meaning to people who are from this part of the coast but, for me, it was a lot of nothing.
I've read a lot of books about boating and this one is pretty much at the bottom.
Sorry to give a negative review but this is how I feel.

There are a few glimmers that he has talent as a writer but the book is mostly weak.

It's easy to love this book, whether you're even a casual boater or a landlubber. Mr. Rubin gives some great insights into his life and the reasons why one makes the choices they make. I read the opening about him building the small boat as a child to my wife, who absolutely was entranced by the images. Even though I live near one of the Great Lakes instead of the Atlantic Ocean, "messing about in boats" is one of the greatest joys in life, which the author has aptly demonstrated in this book.

I picked up Rubin's little classic at a remainder table, thinking to peruse it when I ran out of other reading material. Shame on me. This is an intensly personal and delightful little book. Not for the non nautical, neither is it for the practical. If I could I would drop Mr. Rubin a short note with one word. "Thanks."
