In similarity to old depleted ship discussed here...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wr...the_Mary_Deare

"The Mary Deare" / "The Wreck of the Mary Deare"

First full book that really captured me and that I read through from first to last page... while in early grade at grammar school. At this moment - Can clearly recall standing in "North School" library isle and seeing its title on cover butt about eye level, then pulling it off shelf to read preface. I was instantly excited. The memory so much impressed [touched] me that as I write this I again sense aromas of the old library and books and what I saw as a bright window in the room as I turned in the isle to head toward main desk. Librarian seemed old with gray and brown curly hair. Rather frumpy but pleasant.

After finishing that book in short order; books about what ever I liked to read became my friends.

Love boats; back then loved any sea stories.

PS: Mid 30's I stopped reading fiction. Reality books, study books, document books, reports, articles and factual calculations for potential future outcomes fill my life since. As well as ways of "real" entertainment!

Loved that book as a teen. Fiction is still a fun read although as I age I am finding that truth might indeed be stranger than fiction.

Boat books, fiction

Art, that "old" librarian was probably 40.
I'm with McGillicuddy on still reading fiction. I mostly gave it up in my 30's and 40's for purposeful non-fiction reads.
For me, non-fiction is about understanding things that might matter in the future. Friction is about enjoying myself right now, in the present...

Anyone have a favorite boating book of the fictional type? I found no thread on this topic in the Forum, so I'll start a new one and see if the collective experience can recommend some good reads.

Every so often, a fine vessel like Caroline catches my romantic fancy and I find myself wondering how it must have looked once upon a time. At least as much detail as I can see on PhotoShop, it must have been something like this.

Dang Larry,
Did you finish Bucky and your on to your next project?
What's your Admiral gonna say when she wakes up and sees Caroline C on your dock?
You have confirmed it would be a beautiful boat.

Finished! Bucky!? The Admiral says Bucky will be my final and ONLY project. But I still like dreaming.
