a study of an adventure
by Don Elliott DElliott@Tomah.com
This is a study of an adventure. It is based on a true story as
told by Stephen Ladd in his book "Three years in a 12-foot boat", published by
Seekers Press. In this series, Don Elliott has done a remarkable job of analyzing
the boat, its captain, and particulars of seamanship and design. Of special interest
are Don's wonderful illustrations. We will present a new episode each week.

For those interested
in reading more of Don's articles, and discussing these issues
with him, you can join his Smallboats forum - "Dedicated
to the development of small boats which are rowed, paddled or
sailed under 18 feet."
Don has asked me to remove the capsize series and I have
happily done so. Soon he will have the series available on CD.
I will post a link here for those interested in purchasing the
disk from Don.
