The ChangelingBook - 1989
Emerging from the South American wilderness after adventures related in The Incredible Voyage, Tristan Jones finally makes it home to Britain to find his vessel, the tiny, nearly indestructible Sea Dart, impounded by customs officials because he cannot pay the 'import' tax. In his quest for the means to liberate his boat, he takes any work he can get: stoking the boilers at Harrod's, regaling TV talk-show viewers with wild stories, and skippering one-day 'around the lighthouse' cruises in New York. Eventually Sea Dart is the star of an Explorers Club dinner at the Waldorf-Astoria, then goes on to 'sail' for three days triumphantly through the streets of New York.
