    A film by Gregory Roscoe Running time: 94 minutes A family sailing saga from construction through shakedown cruises, dismastings and family breakdowns told through the lens of a man, a mission and his boat. In 1997, the McKay family- George, JoAnn, Elizabeth, Aaron, Tom and Rob made the decision to build a three masted Galleon as a way for the family to voyage and see new places. However there was a key feature that needed to be integrated into the build- the boat needed to be handicapped accessible to accommodate Elizabeth who has Marfans Syndrome. This accommodation evolved into an obsession, which eventually took its toll on this American family.
