Heinlein, Clarke, Clement, Asimov, Niven, Hogan?
These are the authors I recommended at Barnes & Noble. Is yours like one of Heinlein's yearly 'juveniles' like "Starman Jones" and "The Rolling Stones"? Need a proofreader?
re: another boat - I've been reading boatbuilding books and websites for years, doing my homework before taking the boatbuying plunge. My brother built fiberglass boats for several years. Boats made with woven roving are heavier than foam- or balsa-cored boats, but they are orders of magnitude stronger. After every storm when I go to Hollywood beach, I find chunks of 'glass-covered foam that used to be someone's dream boat.
I've enjoyed your story & this thread. Good luck!
