“A Year Aboard Sankaty” is a book about Markus and Judy Ritter’s adventures aboard their Mariner 36 Sailboat. They retired, sold their home, and searched for a seaworthy live aboard. Almost three months later they found their sailboat and started America’s Great River Loop trip. They spent the winter in Key Largo, Marathon's Boot Key, and the Key West areas. During Easter they went out to the Dry Tortugas, a series of islands sixty miles west of Key West and Ninety miles from Havana, where they found a little piece of heaven.

There are 44 color photos dispersed in the 131 pages of the book.
