About the author (2002)

Paul Snyder and Arthur Snyder, twin brothers, began their lifelong love of sailing and the sea when they built their first boat, a 6-foot punt, as young boys on the Jersey Shore. They are both Navy veterans of World War II, and their boats have included an Alden Challenger and a Herreshoff Alerion. They have cruised from the Grenadines to Roque Island, Maine, and have made several transatlantic crossings.
