Serendipity

The Story of Building a Dream Ship

by Peter L. Murray

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Serendipity is the story of how the author and his wife built a thirty-foot cruising schooner while attending law school in the mid-1960’s. Lacking tools, a proper building location, and any real experience in boat building, the young couple had to learn by doing and persevere in the face of a succession of challenges. The account documents the process of building a bent-frame conventionally planked traditional wooden sailing yacht in some detail. It also tries to recapture the sense of adventure that animated the project from beginning to end.
