Somewhat burned-out, and with mutinous aspirations, J V Kernaghan turns his back on his former life to save a classic, old sailboat that is close to sinking in the harbour of Luperon, in the Dominican Republic.
Equipped with his trusted Swiss army knife and gallons of British self-opinion, he imagines that it should be a fairly straight forward task - especially for one such as he who has endured numerous exploits in the most remote and highest of places of the world.
In this story of managing his limited know-how, dealing with corrupt officials, and enduring sickness and hardships unlike anything he has previously experienced, JVK will come to learn things about himself that only the ocean could teach him.
At the helm of Tropical Delight, he will embark on a solo adventure that will explore the wonders of the Caribbean, and lead him eventually, to the northernmost shores of the American continent and Nova Scotia.
This is the dream that many people dream, but seldom realize.
