What could make a man want to sail solo 2,500 miles up the east coast of the U.S. in a dinghy not much bigger than a king-size bed? How about a creeping mid-life crisis, the terrifying prospect of commitment, and a redheaded girlfriend's inadvertent dare? All of these things confronted Lee Hughes, and he suddenly found himself starting a most unusual adventure with the intent to conquer his lifelong fear of the sea. Fate led him to a 16' open Wayfarer dinghy, literally the biggest boat he could afford. Equipped with a 3.3 HP engine and a pair of sails, but lacking a cabin, galley, bunk, head, or electricity, she treated her new skipper to all the joys of a normal camping trip (rain, bugs, cold, solitude, baked beans) but with a vastly improved chance of drowning.Hughes, Lee is the author of 'Biggest Boat I Could Afford Sailing Up the U.S. Coast in a Dinghy', published 2004 under ISBN 9781574091922 and ISBN 1574091921.
