About the Author

Cap'n Fatty Goodlander grew up aboard the 52-foot John G. Alden schooner "Elizabeth," built in 1924. He salvaged, repaired, and skippered his first boat-a holed 16-foot rowing skiff he discovered awash in St. Petersburg, Florida-at eight years of age. At 15, he purchased ($200) the derelict 1932 Atkin-designed double-ender "Corina" in Chicago-aboard which he eloped with his wife Carolyn in 1970. At 19 years of age, he began building "Carlotta," their 36-foot, 20,000 pound Endurance ketch in Boston. In 1989, at age 37, he salvaged his $3,000 Hughes 38 "Wild Card" after Hurricane Hugo-a heavily damaged vessel, which he and Carolyn then sailed twice around the world while raising their daughter Roma Orion. Cap'n Fatty has written ten marine-related books (see www.fattygoodlander.com) and is now on his 52nd year of living aboard. He is currently the editor-at-large of Cruising World magazine, and recently had a series of radio spots on NPR. He and his wife Carolyn are, as this publication goes to press, leisurely cruising the Mediterranean Sea while continuing to trade words-for-money.
