In a wonderful flight of fancy designed to catch the imagination of blokes and blokesses who love boats and the whole mystique of the America's Cup, Stuart Vaughan has written a book to answer the following questions. What if a wealthy contemporary of Sir thomas Lipton decided to build a J class racing yacht here New Zealand, using our superb kauri timbers that last almost forever? What if the yacht never made it to Cowls but was lost off the Northland Coast? What if the wreck made it ashore and came to rest up an inland waterway, her hull turned into a hay barn? What if a modern day industrialist discovered her and decided to restore her to her original racing form? What follows is a wonderful story of craftsmanship, dedication and imagination as an unlikely team bring Erewhon, the lost J Boat back to life in a very readable and enjoyable tale of Kiwi ingenuity and unstoppable optimism. A great summer read and the ideal preparation for Emirate team New Zealand's challenge for the 2007 America's Cup in Valencia.
