Read this book and The Dog Who Wouldn't Be many years ago and still remember them. Wanted to borrow for a friend recovering from operation but can't get to download yet. Will get son to help later. Such funny books I remember laughing a lot. Will re-read myself as well. Marj

The 'typical Mowatt humor' in this book all seems to begin (and end) with too much booze !! As in ..."We got drunk and I bought a boat that was a wreck",.. or, "We were drinking while steering and saw a beautiful giant whale shark, but we ran over it and ripped out part of the boat's bottom and began to sink"... Ha - Ha ! I really liked "Never Cry Wolf", and I love sailing and schooners,.. but I had put this book aside and leave this 'one joke' tedium unfinished,.

This classic Canadian Author with 42 titles to his credit has a unique way of telling a tale of his personal true to life adventures.

This title " The boat that wouldn't float " is typical Mowat humour.

Looking for a story to forget about the rainy day or runny nose...
this is the one.
