SAGA OF A JUNGLE SCHOONER
James Baldwin tells us about the Zoraida.
"When people learned I’d bought the gaudily painted pink and purple wooden schooner, Zoraida, they offered condolences instead of congratulations. Neighboring boats in the anchorage shunned my ugly boat like a ship carrying plague. ... Her persistent leaking, which several times brought her decks nearly awash, made her known around the anchorage as “the boat who wouldn’t float”. "
