In the spring of 1972 a 20 year old kid from California took off to see the world. His journies led him down the East African coast and across several oceans to a magical Caribbean island and the building of a beautiful boat. This schooner, christened Water Pearl, was owned in part by the legendary musician Bob Dylan. "I'm either in New York or on the West Coast or down in the Caribbean. Me and another guy own a boat down there," he once said. Finally, after forty years, here is the story of how through a cosmic chain of events this remarkable story came to pass.
