By Jon Coile
Hoping to re-light the wanderlust and pleasure of prior crusing studies, Coile, his thirty-seven-year-old brother Andrew, and their eighty-one-year-old father Russell embark on a nine-day, 2,500-mile, round-trip voyage at the Intracoastal Waterway—from the Chesapeake Bay to Miami. Their refurbished vessel, the Griffin, throws them a few curveballs, and the trio encounters different unforeseen occasions, calling for inventive and eccentric suggestions.
More than an insignificant boat journey, Adventures within the Ditch provides a wealthy, hot, and private tale of kin relationships.
