A film by Amy Flannery.
From the Director of Red Dot on the Ocean: The Matt Rutherford Story comes a rollicking docu-comedy about a couple's year-long sailing adventure.
In February of 2007, Amy and husband Ken set out for a year-long cruise up to Canada and then back down the coast to the Bahamas. Along the way they encountered assorted equipment failures, made new friends, visited many interesting places, improved their navigational skills, and made this movie.
Follow the intrepid crew of the Mary T as they set out to see the east coast of North America. Meet a lobsterman in Maine. Come along for a ride on a classic, Maine-built Friendship Sloop. See the spectacular sights of Nova Scotia and the Halifax International Busker Festival. Then head south exploring the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AICW)
from Norfolk, VA to Miami, FL. Then cross the Gulf Stream and arrive in the emerald waters of the Bahamas. With tongue in cheek, maritime journalist "Susie Chatham" (AKA Amy Flannery) guides you on this journey of discovery.
"A cinema-nautical tour de farce, anchored by the irrepressible Susie Chatham. One can only hope for more of such far reaching and insightful commentary on the lives of others from this gifted bespeckled commentarian."
—Dave Insley cinematographer of such lofty cinema as John Waters' Polyester, Hairspray and Crybaby
