An inexperienced family set forth into the South Pacific, carrying on with plans made before husband/father Ted's tragic death. Captain Danny, navigator Denny, and crew Bonnie and Terri barely make it to Hawaii. There the girls, returning home, are replaced by new crew, and the adventure begins. In the course of their eventful voyage they run aground in New Zealand, approach Fiji under tow, are shipwrecked on Guadalcanal, and the author undergoes major surgery in a jungle bush hospital. In Part Two, daughter Bonnie and the author revisit the islands, this time by jet, and have equally challenging experiences!
