RANSBY, Alex with Kim KIELLEY. A Boat Called Hipjoint : A Solo Atlantic Crossing. St. John's, NL : Flanker Press Ltd., 2004. First Edition. Pp (12),1-175,(5). Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated card covers. "Alex Ransby is a bad boy, better suited for Armani and Jaguar than epoxy and glue. As his life lay in tatters, an arthritis-stricken Ransby made the decision to build a boat and sail around the world. But his hopes and dreams slowly eroded until all that was left of the original plan was the Atlantic and the homemade boat he called HipJoint. HipJoint is more than a boat. She is Ransby’s friend and confidant, and she provides him with the opportunity to finally stare down his demons while alone at sea, surviving treacherous storms and the jagged, unforgiving coastline of Newfoundland. A Boat Called HipJoint is the story of one man’s battle against nature, and ultimately himself, as he struggles to regain some semblance of self-confidence while crossing the Atlantic Ocean alone." - from the back cover.
