Confessions of a Boat Lover's Wife, Or, is a Marriage Like This Worth Saving?

Mina Bess Lewis, Author, Constance Roosevelt, Editor, John R. Whiting, Designed by Hearst Books $10.95 (156p) ISBN 978-0-688-06918-6
The reluctant, landlubber wife is a familiar feature in boating literature, so Lewis is hardly a stranger. The difference here is that the family crafts have been power cruisers, so she was spared the trauma of learning to sail. She quickly learned the ABC's of boating; also the E'sextras, equipment, expenses; and R'srepairs, replacements, reimbursements. Her system of providing meals at sea is to cook at home, wrap the food in heavy insulation and carry it to the boat. Lewis, author of Prime Time, describes the boating life on Long Island Sound, along with ""port sports,'' ``dock flocks'' and the boats that never leave their moorings. These stories, plus accounts of cruising adventures, add up to frothy entertainment. (January 28)
