"When it came to the ways of the North, Ennis McHenry’s opinion was not one to be taken lightly …schooners to seiners….white squalls to Arctic gales ….sixty years man and boy. “In this country there’s three things I want to see on a sailboat!” he growled “…and only one of them is sails.” You’ll need a diesel engine someone’s tended to reg’lar …and you’ll be want’n a good spray dodger. The sails will get you there eventually, the diesel will keep you out of trouble, but it’s the dodger that’ll save your arse from the god-awful cold and wet."
