A DAY IN THE LIFE.. by Herb McCormick 

A few years ago, long time friend and editor of Cruising World Magazine took on one of the most dangerous and liver bending andventures in his life. The Magazine sent him to the Virgin Islands to find out the inner workings of Barefoot Davis.. when the fog cleared and the hangovers subsided resulted an article in the magazine that was bigger than the americas cup coverage. i learned at the annapolis boat show that the adventure is now published in Herb's new book GONE TO THE SEA.. the book contains some of herb's adventures over the years on assignment.. it is an honor to be part of a series of short stories in the book... the book is available on AMAZON.COM...ENJOY
