The bark canoes of the North American Indians, particularly those of birch bark, were among the most highly developed of manually propelled primitive watercraft. Built with Stone Age tools from materials available in the areas of their use, their design, size, and appearance were varied so as to create boats suitable to the many and different requirements of their users. The great skill exhibited in their design and construction shows that a long period of development must have taken place before they became known to white men. The Indian bark canoes were most efficient watercraft for use in forest travel; they were capable of being propelled easily with a single-bladed paddle. This allowed the paddler, unlike the oarsman, to face the direction of travel, a necessity in obstructed or shoal waters and in fast-moving streams. The canoes, being light, could be carried overland for long distances, even where trails were rough or nonexistent. Yet they could carry heavy loads in shallow water and could be repaired in the forest without special tools. Bark canoes were designed for various conditions: some for use in rapid streams, some for quiet waters, some for the open waters of lakes, some for use along the coast. Most were intended for portage in overland transportation as well. They were built in a variety of sizes, from small one-man hunting and fishing canoes to canoes large enough to carry a ton of cargo and a crew, or a war-party, or one or more families moving to new habitations. Some canoes were designed so that they could be used, turned bottom up, for shelter ashore...

Roger has worked his way into the Caribbean on sailboats, now hes chartering for Lateenya, a smoking hot black skipper with a catamaran. She expects him to satisfy her in every way, as well as her female guests passengers. That isnt always smooth sailing. Some clients prove more challenging than others. But Roger is willing to do his best, giving them pleasure in every hole. When a couple come aboard to talk about arranging charters for swingers, he and Lateenya have to show them that they are willing to go all the way - hard and hot and bareback. ----- PG Excerpt ----- Meeting clients at the airport is just one part of my job. It is the opening gambit in our attempt to create the right atmosphere from the moment of arrival. It follows a routine that isnt supposed to vary, even when I am meeting and having lusty thoughts about hot women. The correct protocol is that I introduce myself as Roger, the first (and only) mate on the charter yacht Fantasy. First I politely inquire (without staring at their bare legs or other body parts too obviously) how their flight was, commiserate with them over whatever bad weather, delays or surly flight attendants they endured, while I help them get their bags, load them into our battered station wagon, drive them the short distance to the marina, introduce them to the Captain, and load their stuff in the boat. Captain Lateenya takes over from that point. Lateenya likes to avoid fuss and formality as much as possible; she likes things to run smoothly and flow easily, like the outgoing tide rushing down the beach. After all, people hire us so that they can let us take care of the logistics of life while they relax and go sailing...in that order, she reminds me, quite correctly. As an avid sailor, I know that I am prone to twisting those priorities around a bit if Im not reminded. In the short time Ive worked for her Ive been amazed at how many people who charter a boat have no interest at all in sailing. You need to know, if you havent figured it out, that Lateenya is the incredibly sexy, long-legged Captain, owner of the catamaran Fantasy, and sole owner of the business called Fantasy Charters. She had this business package in mind when she first brought her beautiful 44-foot catamaran, which was built to her specifications in Maine, down to the islands. After working for other people, sailing their boats, she wanted to do her own thing, live her own sailing fantasy. Dont we all? If you know that, then the name of her boat and business are fairly self-explanatory and obvious. Putting it quite simply, Lateenya really likes fantasies. And while she enjoys acting out her own fantasies, sometimes, when all goes well, I think she likes selling them, helping people explore their own, even more. Besides, fulfilling your own fantasies doesnt typically pay too well. The nice thing about selling vacations based on fantasies, she told me, the best quality, is that they promise everything and nothing at the same time. It is all titillation, as the marketing people would say. People develop a basic idea of doing something pleasant, like sailing in the tropics, into a larger image that appeals to them. All we do is sail them as close to that image as we can.
