Enjoy Part 2 of the Historic
Saga & Nautical Life-Journey Of
Multihull Designer Jim Brown
Embracing his role of cockpit storyteller,
Jim Brown continues sharing how multihulls happened to him
so we ll have these tales for ourselves
and future generations of multihullers
In this second volume ... the Brown family swallows the anchor in the American South and suffers reverse culture shock. Sons Steven and Russell go on to build their own boats and sail to faraway places. Wife Jo Anna expands her career helping children with learning difficulties. Jim becomes a global Johnny Appleseed -- spreading his practical know-how knowledge of modern trimarans, catamarans and proas. And the Browns enjoys some spectacular multihull crusing experiences to boot.
Travel with Jim as he helps indigenous peoples in Africa, the Philippines and the Pacific Islands create modern workboats to try and solve their economic challenges. Sail with him to exotic and beautiful locals from Canada to Cuba. And meet unforgettable (and sometimes downright incredible) sailors, adventurers, friends, indigenous peoples, various eklectic folks and assorted characters along the way.
Truly remarkable tales from an amazing life among boats -- especially multihulls. After finishing certain portions of this book you ll probably find yourself saying, Wow you re never gonna believe what I just read, to anybody who will listen
Jim Brown is easily one of the most celebrated figures in the 20th century's modern multihull movement. And after reading this first volume of this memoir, you'll feel like you've come to know the man in the same way you know a personal friend.
Many memoirs are meant to embellish the life work of the author, which often means playing loose with the truth about the past, being selective about what facts to include (and which ones to bury) and producing an endless amount of positive spin meant to always put the writer in a positive light.
Not so with this memoir.
If anything, Jim Brown tries hard to separate facts from fiction, and offers a deeply personal account that includes notable mistakes (both career and personal) in the midst of many great moments throughout his life. For this reason alone, his memoir is destined to forever endear him to its readers ... including you
