Gear List of the Golden Moon by Dick Callahan
What to pack for costal travel in an open boat with notes on anchoring, hazards, money and other helpful things.
This book describes what I took aboard the 18 foot dory Golden Moon rowing and sailing from Alaska to Seattle with a few words on travelling by open boat. If some things are in the way of your open boat travels; like you've got no boat, no gear, no money, no experience with either distance rowing or sailing and no clue where to start, this book is for you. Whether for weekend camping, distance rowing, or the simple happiness of a sunset in an open boat, my hope is that this gear list will be of help to those who walk the docks and feel a certain pull.
