Amanda Lewis spends her summers working in the often exciting family business of fishing charters on Lake Huron, but her winters are cold, dull, and boring. In Florida, where it’s warm,... More > she’s looking for a cheap boat she can live on, and her Coast Guardsman brother has found a possibility in the Rag Doll.
