Description: Building a boat and sailing it around the world is an adventure that many people dream about but
few ever attempt. Of those sailors who actually begin such a voyage, only a handful ever complete
the trip. For Herb and Doris Smith, the dream has become a reality. They have built three traditional
wooden schooners, each named Appledore, and circumnavigated the globe with two of them. Plans
are underway for more world voyages.
In this combination family adventure story and how-to book, the Smiths share their remarkable life
with readers who merely have the dream and with others who are seriously considering such a long
voyage. With ingenuity and hard work, but little money, the Smiths have created a life style that stirs
the imagination of anyone who longs to see the islands of the Caribbean or the South Seas, to shop
in the markets of Bah, to visit the descendants of mutineers on Pitcairn, or to brave the
Strait of Magellan, as the Smiths did on their most recent voyage.
After a number of cruises in the United States Coast Guard and the Merchant Marine, and
a few years filming movies for Walt Disney Productions, Herb decided to build his own schooner,
spurred on by legendary boat designer and builder Bud Macintosh. Soon after completing the 48-foot
Appledore I, Herb and Doris were married aboard and set off for the Caribbean, where they spent the
winter. Young Tom Smith was born the following winter at Key West and was sailing with his parents
when only two days old. Tom has made both world voyages and was joined on the second trip
by his sister, Lisa.
