~~~ More delightful nautical yarns from Constant Waterman ~~~

Matthew “Constant Waterman” Goldman and his sailboat "MoonWind" constantly roam the waters of southeast New England, where these stories are centered. Each tale is short and sweet and imbued with a wry smile, a gentle bemusement, an unquenchable love of boats, and joy for life. Not to mention the never-ending search for mermaids. . . .

MoonWind is a twenty-six foot sloop with an eight foot beam. This means that she was designed for close dancing, close encounters, moderate winds, six-day weekends, and numerous fabulous voyages. Her anchor holds her most of the time, her tiller seldom breaks in adverse conditions, and her bronze bell on the bulkhead rings only as her rail dips to the brine.

Constant Waterman early in life acquired that pernicious habit of messing about in boats, for which the only cure is to move to the top of Mount Washington. Having rejected the landlubber lifestyle, he has managed to waste the past sixty years of his boyhood messing about in boats. The alternative, to grow up and work for a living, never did appeal to him.

For anyone who enjoys the art of sailing, join MoonWind and learn the exquisite relevance of the wind upon the water.

--Includes beautiful pen-and-ink illustrations by the author throughout.

Matthew Goldman is the author of "The Journals of Constant Waterman," among several other books.
