Aremarkable story of a conventional family of five living a
very unconventional life afloat. Follow
Dave and Jaja Martin, and their crew of three children from their beginnings
aboard a 25-foot day sailor circumnavigating the globe to their most
recent voyage on a 33 foot steel sloop to the Arctic. There they encounter
new friends, icebergs, and polar bears. "Have you ever
touched an iceberg? Have you ever built your own home on land and on
the water? Have you ever born and raised children on different
oceans? Have you ever gone contrary to convention, not just in
life’s small things, but in life’s big choices? Dave and Jaja Martin
have done all of this—and much, much more."
