About the Author About the Authors: Beth and Richard Smith

Richard and Beth have been "messing about in boats" at various times throughout their lives, individually and together. The last two decades have seen a move up to "big boats." Coastal cruises have included numerous trips up and down the Eastern seaboard including the ICW — where they’ve perfected the art of "achievable cruising" — a one or two week cruise, leave the boat, go home, and come back two weeks or a month or two later. Other cruising adventures have taken them to Bermuda, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, the South Pacific and the Mediterranean. They have shared many of these experiences with three superb crewmembers — their now-grown children, Jason and Amanda and their sea-dog, Molly. They are firm believers in "going" even if it means taking the office along. Technology has made that not only possible, but also amazingly easy. Even their boat is networked. They are also committed to wonderful food along the way — on board and ashore. Provisioning, they’ve discovered, may be the most useful and entertaining of all cruising skills (bested, perhaps, only by sail trim, engine mechanics and a clear understanding of navigation) and they seek out the best resources at every landfall. Along the way, they’ve also visited more than 1500 marinas on the East coast as both cruisers and authors.
