Sinopsis:

Before sleek factory boats dominated Currituck Sound, locals piloted these waters in hulls made by hand. Some still can be seen today--beautiful works of art designed for the utility of travel, fishing, hunting, scouting and touring. They figure prominently in recollections of a bygone sportsman's paradise, and native storyteller Travis Morris offers this engaging collection based on anecdotes, interviews and detailed craft descriptions. It's an insider's history of Currituck's boating heritage featuring the famed Whalehead Club, an accidental run-in with the Environmental Protection Agency and a harrowing U.S. Coast Guard rescue.

About the Author:

Travis Morris was born in Coinjock, North Carolina, in 1932 (in the same house his mother was born in on April 3, 1908). In 1970 he started Currituck Realty, a business he still owns forty years later. In 1971, he took people across Currituck Sound in an old gas boat and out to the beach in an old Corvair for which he paid fifty dollars. He'd written Currituck Realty" on the side of the car with white shoe polish. He sold oceanfront lots for $12,000 that are now valued at over $1 million. In 1974, he operated Monkey Island Club and opened it to the public for the first time since its founding in 1876."
