Why would any sound individual sign up to be waterlogged,
pirate-plagued, hurricane trashed, humiliated, and just generally
inconvenienced? Anyone bitten by the boating bug, or just
intrigued, should pick up The Borders of the Waters, Phyllis
Hudgins's high-spirited nautical memoir of countless days on every
imaginable vessel and weather condition. This series of related
stories charts her years with husband Bob taking up rolling,
reeling residence on the water. Throughout, she reveals the risks,
the humor, the spendor, the camaraderie, and the bountiful fun that
every excursion affords this all-weather twosome. From the
mild-mannered Great Lakes to the fickle Florida coast, Hudgins's
many shores are rich in high times and low tides. With a seasoned
eye and philosophical attitude, she navagates decades of challenges
undertaken, lessons learned, destinations discovered, and
friendships sealed, sailing the Hawiian Islands, the Bahamas, St.
John's River, and Cape Horn, among other locals. Along the way,
they wrestle hurricanes, pirates, and sometimes an equally
agonizing lack of wine. At the same time they encounter random acts
of kindness, rum-filled, antic evenings, and awe inspiring shows
from Mother Narture certain to strike the fancy of anyone, with sea
legs or not. Whether water-logged engines or wet and sleepless
nights, nothing can dampen the author's love of boating, and every
page is awash in a wanderlust that transcends the most daunting
days at sea. Any reader seeking humor-infused armchair travel, or a
reason to relish every day, will take to this warm-hearted,
windswept memoir like a salty dog to water.
