About the Author
Originally from the small coastal town of Bayville, NJ, Mark grew up sailing small boats for years. With only a rudimentary knowledge of the inner workings of larger boats and boat mechanics, Mark moved aboard his 33 Hunter Marine sailboat, The Morning Fog. For what was supposed to be a turnkey purchase for just under $30,000, Mark's boat was less than ideal from day one.

Many have criticized the author for talking about Boston too much. In all fairness, it is well written citing real experiences and Boston is where his boat is! I would no expect him to write about Marathon if he has never lived aboard there. His cold weather principles are sound and should be helpful
I am getting closer and closer to my loop target age and I am reading and re-reading many books that will be helpful in my decisions. I highly recommend adding this to your must read list.
The author seems intelligent, yet not arrogant and the book is well laid out as well as written.
