If you want a fun seafaring story, then you should consider The Boat Who Wouldn’t Float.
The story is about the author who is fed up with life and decides life on a boat is the way to go so he buys one in Newfoundland and moves aboard. Of course he bought the worst boat ever since it always leaked, often sank, and the engine had a mind of its own.
Farley Mowat is very entertaining and I can only imagine what a blog of his would look like if he did this adventure today instead of in the late 60’s.
I hope you take the time to read this nautical classic!!!!
