The first book, Leap of Faith / Quit Your Job and Live on a Boat, was an Amazon best seller in multiple categories. Now he’s back with this hilarious look at the nautical lifestyle. From poop to booze to bikinis, he covers the funnier side of the issues encountered by boaters of all types. With chapters like “Signs You Live on a Boat”, “Stupid People on Rental Equipment”, and “Zombies Can’t Swim”, you’ll find plenty of laughs. There’s even a chapter for Tim Dorsey fans. If you are a liveaboard, cruiser, weekender, wannabe boater, have boating friends, or are just a fan of Ed Robinson’s wit, you will enjoy this light-hearted romp through many maritime topics.

Ed also posted an update with Reading Recommendations about another new publication, The Untold Story of Kim.

Ed’s reading recommendation:
I’m a voracious reader. So many good books out there these days, it’s hard to narrow down a list of favorites. Florida fiction is my favorite. I love to read Randy Wayne White, James Hall, Tim Dorsey and Carl Hiassen. My all-time favorite author was John D. Macdonald.
