This book is the tongue-in-cheek (and true) story about the building of a wooden catamaran by two brothers as they attempt to escape the clutches of Western Civilisation by sea. Part carpentry, part oddjob, part philosophy, hopefully part funny, and above all part sailing, the narrative takes you from the early terrors experienced whilst sailing dinghies as children to the high seas twenty years later.The contraption was over 35 feet long, bestrewn with lighting wires and baulks of timber, and probably wholly illegal. ... with a tow arm attached that I could borrow was Rufusa#39;s CND (Campaign For Nuclear Disarmament) Ford Transit van.
