Re: Newbe with no experience buys big boat

I read this book over the weekend while waiting out the thunderstorms. I loved the sailing parts - very exciting and as mentioned already, the language used is friendly and I feel like even non-sailors could follow along and enjoy it. The writing was really good for a first time author. Good job dude!

I did not however enjoy the parts about the ladies. Especially the continued jabs at their weight and looks. I get wanting to make it realistic and true, but I thought it was kind of mean. I feel like there was enough drama in the sailing that you didn't need the added discourse with characters we never really had enough time to get to know - one of the reasons I think the women all came off as kind of terrible.
