This book makes me home sick.

I grew up outside of Annapolis and remember when Annapolis was full of work boats named after wives and daughters. And one particular boat named JIMMY. I always thought it was a great opportunity for a double dedication. One story reminded me of a great day my brother and I caught a bushel of doublers in about an hour in his skiff on Eastern Bay.

This book reminds me of "The Big Oyster" but much more intimate.
