Contents: In 1882, Bernard Gilboy sailed a 19-foot schooner that he built himself from San Francisco 7,000 miles across the Pacific in 162 days until he was picked up exhausted and starving off Queensland, Australia after a swordfish pierced his hull and he lost the rudder. He was attempting the first solo crossing of the Pacific. This book is the annotated and edited log of that voyage. Illustrated with photographs, a fold-out drawing of the "Pacific" and a fold-out map of the voyage.
