The Purchase

"The broker was in high spirits; he had our bank check in his briefcase. "Young man," he said, shaking my hand, "you are the first person I've ever met who has bought a boat BEFORE a hurricane. Where'd you tell me you wanted to take this boat? Down to the Islands someday?" I shook my head. I had already told the broker that Jaja and I wanted a cruising ground that was remote, somewhere free from the clutch of mass-market tourism, somewhere off the beaten track."
