Re: Maine and North

There is a fairly recent book called "North to the Night" by Alvah Simon that is worth checking out. He spends the winter on his boat way, way up there and besides walrus he finds polar bears and Inuit.

The book is written well but the guy is a bit of a nut in my opinion.

They get seals out by Montauk and the rare gray or harbor seal in the Hudson. Walrus, not so much.

Also check out Peter Smith's blog about sailing to Antarctica: http://www.petersmith.net.nz/
Great photos of all the places they visited.

Have you already got a new boat?
