William W. Fortenbaugh has taken millions of boat lovers and water activities enthusiasts in different parts of the world a trip down memory lane with the release of From Beaton’s to Beach Haven: A Cat Ghost BH G. The author writes about the legendary twenty-eight-foot wooden Catboat called Ghost, which belongs to a class of boats unique to Bornegat Boy in New Jersey.
Ghost practically stormed the world in the mid-nineties, winning seven consecutive Bay championships from 1994 to 2000 while also exhibiting extraordinary craftsmanship. While the boat remains a masterpiece to date, only a few know about the process of building this edifice. However, William W. Fortenbaugh is offering an eye-opener to as many people as possible in From Beaton’s to Beach Haven.
The Professor Emeritus of Classics at Rutgers University and avid sailor collaborates with the builders at Beaton’s, the crew of Ghost, photographers, and friends to deliver a comprehensive account of how the Ghost was built. The book details the unique features of the boat in text and pictures, as well as a vivid narration of Ghost’s initial disaster on the racecourse, an astonishing comeback, and its over two decades of continuous competition.
From Beaton’s to Beach Haven: A Cat Ghost BH G is currently available on Amazon in Hardcover, Paperback, and Kindle versions, and it has continued to garner reviews from readers worldwide. “I didn’t grow up interested in boats or sailing and didn’t really know much about boats and sailing until just recently. Got the bug when I saw America’s Cup in 2017. Since then, I’ve been trying to get my hands on every piece of literature about sailing and boats possible. From Beaton’s to Beach Haven is a very informative, well-illustrated history of the Ghost. William Fortenbaugh has an engaging style. I never had to skip a single word. This book is perfect for anyone interested in sailing, from the seasoned skipper to the untutored beginner. Highly recommended,” said Ma. Juana Espina.
