Along the Edge of America: Peter Jenkins: 0046442877374: Amazon.com: Books
It is about the trip from the Keys to Bownsville by Peter Jenkins in his Grady White. He followed the coast and describes his trip and the stops he made along the way. I believe it was 28" Grady. I have owned two of them both 23' Gulfstreams great fishing. The first was totaled when a guy running a stop sign knocked it of the trailer as I was on the road going home after a fishing trip.
