Product Description:
This book is for anyone who wonders what it’s like to live on a boat and follow the seasons up and down the coast, all Trawler owners and Wannabes, everyone approaching retirement with little enthusiasm, all those who enjoy a good read and a chuckle, as well as cat lovers everywhere.
Seven Miles An Hour isn’t only about the pleasures of gunkholing in Florida and the Keys. There’s a sudden grounding, an alligator encounter, a dragging anchor, and a cat overboard. There’s the search for the green flash, making new friends in remote anchorages, a guardian angel, as well as practical advice on anchoring out, coastal cruising, and living aboard.

“A wonderful voyage. The way it was written put me by your side every moment of the way. I thoroughly enjoyed going along with you and experiencing what I never have before.” Al Soforenko, South Carolina.

“I really enjoyed reading about your adventures. We have a Krogen 44 on order... We have been reading everything we can getting ready... Your tales are just about the best thing we've found, fun things with a dose of reality! I especially thank you for some great, practical information... ” Kelton & Louisa Ogletree, Texas.
“I can't thank you enough... Reading about your experiences is proving to be invaluable; not only through the huge amount of information that you impart, but also through hearing how your wife has come to love the live-aboard life style.... Thanks for the terrific read.” Carol Treitz, Waterloo.
“Don, I loved your book. Your book so relaxed me (very rare) that I slept like a rock and really didn't want to go back to the office the next day. What a wonderful jewel to find...Thanks again for showing me the way. ” Linn Hynds.
“Have just now finished your book and am in a state of euphoria. Don, I've been looking at the Pilgrim on my Imac, and it causes sleepless nights! I'm afraid I might sell my house and buy a Pilgrim! ...Your account of cruising is absolutely delightful. ” Gordon Crafts.
"I've read many cruising stories, but I have to say yours has been the most enjoyable... Thanks for the great read.” Julie Bales.
"I loved your book...Thank you for your efforts both for the writing and for making your adventures available to others... Another thing I noticed throughout and really appreciated is your honesty: sometimes things don't go exactly as planned; sometimes things work out better than planned; sometimes people on the water aren't always nice; sometimes there is so much love and beauty in the world it just takes one's breath away. We'll be quoting you for a long time. Thank you very much for sharing your stories!" Patricia J. Ehrman, Jackson, Wyoming.
