Fatty Goodlander

Well I must say I recently found out about Fatty Goodlander and have been reading a few of his books. What a character anda wealth of information. I wish I had known about him sooner. Really good info and insight and a great sense of humor to boot.

Amazing character who's been able to live the life with a supportive and capable spouse. Of course, he grew up on boats, which is a big advantage, IMO.

I've had to good fortune to meet Cap'n Fatty. He's as witty, intelligent and genuine in real life as he is in his writing.

Re: Fatty Goodlander

He and his wife Carolyn are lovely. He is the 'bigger' personality because of his media presence but in real life she is just as interesting as him.

Unlike most writers who did a circumnavigation and then life off it for decades, Fatty and Carolyn head off again as soon as they come back.

So you won't find them gunkholing the Chesapeake, you will only find them is some vastly long way off cruising port. They're on their 3rd circumnavigation.

Indeed. I think they are somewhere in Africa at the moment.
