“When it comes to the subject of capable cruising, the Pardeys have literally and figuratively written the book on it. The lessons they’ve learned after tens of thousands of miles at sea are hard-earned, clearly imparted, and totally invaluable.” – Herb McCormick, Cruising World
Taleisin’s Tales reflects back to the first miles Lin and Larry Pardey gained together on their second boat; one they built lovingly with teak carvel planking over sawn black locust frames. The book begins with the boat launch and the transition from their cherished Seraffyn, and includes details from outfitting, provisioning and final detailing during the early months Lin and Larry spent getting to know their new bluewater cruiser, as well as moments of melancholy as they let go of attachments to their first trusty boat that took them around the world. Taleisin’s Tales takes the reader through those initial cautious 1000 coastal miles between California and the Sea of Cortez.
