When we got the job chartering Water Lily, I thought about those articles I had read in Yachting on chartering. I decided to keep some notes , and maybe someday I could also sell something to one of the yachting magazines.
Marie had brought her small, portable typewriter when we left home on Anchorite.
One day on Water Lily, I started making notes, using the typewriter. Though I never pursued getting something published in Yachting, I did refer occasionally to those notes years later when I wrote the book.
Here is the picture Marie took of me typing away in our forward quarters.
