Baja Cruiser's Book

Ahoy All You Salty Dogs and Cats,

Has anyone read the book: Voyage of Maiatla with the Naked Canadian?

It's a great book artfully outlining a cruising families preparations and experiences in their cruise aboard their Hardin Voyager 44 from Vancouver to the Sea of Cortez and an unexpected return trip home via the old clipper route.

It's well written and loaded with valuable annecdotes and entertaining interludes as a tight knit family find their way among other cruisers, storms, equipment failures, locals and personal discoveries.

Plus...I'm in the book! In the last two chapters! Kind of crazy seeing yourself through the eyes of another cruiser.

Check it out at


The sail, the play of it's pulse so like our own lives: So thin and yet so full of life, so noiseless when it labors hardest, so noisy and impatient when least effective...
Henry David Thoreau
