I thoroughly enjoyed how Saunders and his family assembled the boat in Mozambique. Couldn't care too much about the sailing part unfortunately. That part strangely was perhaps too short though: some crucial dynamics with four children and a wife on board must have been left out (or these kids and spouse are very very complacent about what seems to have been mostly Saunder's hobby).
