"If you're thinking about buying your first sailboat and making it your own, you need to read this refreshingly honest tale." -- Ed Robinson, author of Poop, Booze & Bikinis Had I ever sailed? No. Did I think that mattered? No. I felt I had whatever grit and guile I needed to handle this silly sailing stuff. I parachuted with a sheet, drove a car that started with a screwdriver, swished with hydrogen peroxide. I rode horses, climbed rocks, leapt off cliffs. I spent summers in the sleeper of a big rig. I ate Malt-o-Meal. Surely these were excellent traits of a sailor. Surely I was salty enough. I fancied I was. Either way, we were going to find out. The time to go was now. All we needed was a boat.

About Annie Dike I was a lawyer until I quit. When I did, I started traveling the world, sailing, seeing everything, trying anything and then writing about all of it--some stories, some truths. Most of my tales are meant to be wildly entertaining--at my own expense. But, don't let that stop you. Feel free. Laugh it up. I'll be right there laughing along with you, because I'll agree. I am the stupidest smart person I know--the funniest, too. Assuming that is even remotely true, I figured I might as well try to entertain the masses with it--hence, the blog ( and the books. Some are practical. If you are a lawyer and want to bill more (who doesn't?), get The Billable Hour. It will pay for itself in one billable day, trust me. The rest are pure entertainment--stories in which I hope you will lose yourself, find yourself and laugh at yourself (because you know you were thinking the same dumb thing as me). Either way, I'll keep cranking them out. It beats the practice at least. Enjoy!
