Synopsis

Christian Beamish, a former editor at The Surfer's Journal, envisioned a low-tech, self-reliant exploration for surf along the coast of North America, using primarily clothes and instruments available to his ancestors, and the 18-foot boat he would build by hand in his garage. How the vision met reality  and how the two came to shape each other  places Voyage of the Cormorant in the great American tradition of tales of life at sea, and what it has to teach us.
