If you have a "water rat" in your household, this book will likely become their bible of all things boaty. It's what your child (and inner-child...) needs to set a proper course for a life by and on the sea. It's packed with tons of things to make and water/seamanship skills to learn--like making a collecting dredge, the ever-popular potato cannon, building a tube raft, handling a capsize, feline forecasting, learning to scull, and so much more. It's the ultimate cure for "There's nothing to do!"
