After almost two years coastal cruising down the west coast of the Americas to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, Chowder finds herself on the verge of venturing out on long ocean crossings through the South Pacific. With these crossings sometimes lasting over two weeks between landfalls at remote tropical islands, like the enchanted Easter Island, Chowder learns what it's really like be an able-bodied ocean sailing sea cat.

In the following pages Chowder shares how she and the crew managed to handle two years of amazing experiences on land and at sea, while cruising with the trade winds through the South Pacific to New Zealand, venturing further through the volcanic islands of Melanesia, crossing the equator to Micronesia in the North Pacific Ocean, and voyaging back south through the Solomon and Coral Sea to Australia. Besides having a great time eating fresh fish, playing with birds, being surrounded by dolphins, finding wonderful scenery and wildlife, and watching local inhabitants practicing ancient traditional ceremonies, Chowder had to endure challenging situations involving invasive insects, flying fish, lightning strikes, volcanic eruptions, rough seas, cyclones, and swimming in sea water. However, Captain Lee and mate Sheila always tried to keep a watchful eye on her. Plenty of amazing adventures to purr about!
