Budding author.

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.


George and his wife, Marie, sailed professionally, chartering boats in the Bahamas, then in the Virgin Islands. They then leased an uninhabited island, Little Thatch, in the British Virgin Islands, and turned it into a small hotel. After six years, they left the island and bought a lovely beachfront property on Jost Van Dyke (BVI) where they built Sandcastle Hotel and the original Soggy Dollar Bar. George is now the author of Incredible Virgin Island Adventure: A True Story.
