Dream Boat Cruising

Bette Waters - Gerald Curwin, 2008

Dream Boat CruisingThree inexperienced sailors leave Detroit, sailing through a life-threatening gale on Lake Erie, flood in the Erie Barge Canal, breath-taking NY harbor, a boat fire in NJ, nor’easter storms, running out of gas, and arriving safely in Charleston, SC 33 days later.

We locked the doors, parked the van, caught a ride to the river and set sail that October in 1981. Like birds migrating, something pulled and we went.

The ship’s log adventures of the Bette Lou rival my tugboat years in the Bering Sea.
.... Charles Nushart, Chief Engineer, Retired

I stayed up until 0130 reading. These adventurous souls decide to follow their dream, buy a boat, haul anchor, and are chased by winter storms from Lake Erie to SC. A life-changing feat many of us wish for, but lack the courage.
