After years and years of talking about sailing, reading about sailing, dreaming about sailing, Farley Mowat finally buys himself a boat. He has plans of adventures on the sea and peaceful sailing with family and friends.
But what happens when you end up with a boat that leaks, sinks occasionally and only motors in reverse? Well, you’re about to find out!
I don’t know about you, but I just can’t resist an adventure book by Farley Mowat! His descriptions in The Boat Who Wouldn’t Float are genius! Be aware there is some swearing. As a mom, I always skipped or replaced those words when reading aloud — my oldest daughter later told me she could always tell. And here I thought I was so smooth!
I’m confident the “Who” instead of “That” in the title was chosen completely on purpose!
