A modified version of an iconic wooden boat is about to sink. The author decides to save her and to do the work himself. It takes him six years. The story of why and how he did it, what he learned in the process and his imaginary conversations with Mudlark's Ghosts: a legendary designer, the naval architect who modified the sailplan, her commissioning owner and her builder - all long dead but still afloat. Richly illustrated with photographs, plans and maps.
