Rhea grows up in the hippie days of the 70’s aboard a hand-built, ocean-voyaging tugboat, home-schooled with her siblings while her parents tow nuclear-reactors and molasses barges. Later she joins Icelander Petur on his 72 foot sailing ketch, Dagny, as they voyage for eight years from Newfoundland to Poland to Venezuela and back. “Nobody has more sea-time than Rhea!”
With an ever-changing crew, Dagny voyages nearly non-stop happily surviving mechanical failures, ripped sails, a keel conversion, irate port captains, multiple mast-removals, and two Newfoundland winters. Petur and Rhea try land life again, before motor-sailing to Greenland and Iceland on a 44 foot Moody delivery. Adventures continue when Dagny is put back together and sets off for points south. As they re-visit ports from Rhea’s childhood, she flashes back to the days of growing up on a tugboat.
