   This book is about remarkable waterborne voyages made in surprisingly small boats, generally, but not always, boats under twenty feet in length. Just as any good small-boat skipper knows never to cleat off a sheet lest he or she be blown over by a sudden gust, we won't encumber our narrative with an exact size limitation. After all, the length of a boat isn't the only determiner of its size, though it is commonly thought to be. To take two examples from this book, boats like Gerry Spiess's ten-foot sloop Yankee Girl were much larger volumetrically than, say, Ed Gillet's twenty-foot kayak Tofino. So by our definition a "small boat" is one less than about twenty feet long, but also one that is pushed to the extremes of its design limitations to complete a journey that spans great distances, often whole oceans.
