London Goes To Sea is Peter J. Baumgartner's candid and captivating account of restoring an ageing fibreglass sailing boat over the course of four years and then introducing it to his native New England waters. His precise records illustrate every trial and triumph of the restoration process, and his careful attention to errors made along the way provides crucial insight for anyone considering a similar project. His writing combines the best elements of a brisk, entertaining narrative and a thoroughly practical handbook, making for a truly unique story that embraces every experience of the coastal sailor. His unflagging joy and enthusiasm for his old Cape Dory shine through on every page.
