Review of The Voyage of the Maiatla with the Naked Canadian.

It is a rare time indeed when a non-fictional account of a family’s adventure sailing the high seas is true to the meaning of captivating. This novel throws the reader a life preserver and pulls you aboard where you are instantly welcomed as crew, diver, explorer, and good friend of the Gunson family. The Netherworld with its noise and smoke and stress is left behind — you’re on Cruiser time now and likely the most difficult task ahead is trying to put this book down.

Author, Skipper Andrew Gunson and Editor-wife, Janet Gunson have created a work that takes you exploring underwater caves of the Sea of Cortez, unpredictable Moray eels with attitude, distant murky shadows while you dive among reefs possessed by Great White Sharks, leaping Manta Rays, and sailing on the Maiatla with a hurricane charging within site behind you. The written details are magnificent; there are no voids when the reader will ask themselves, “How did I get to this part of the story-”

And most of all, it’s a saga about a husband, wife and their two children, moments of tears and laughter, curiosity and apathy, and close friendships and dangerous strangers.

The story is a romance with the ocean and life; its certainties, surprises and mysteries – who is the Naked Canadian.

The Voyage of the Maiatla with the Naked Canadian by Andrew W. Gunson. It is a fine read – a great read — a must read for the Cruiser that is in all of us.

For an embracing, enhancing visual of Maiatla and her crew enter Maiatla on YouTube and prepare to “raise the hook!” as you sail on The Voyage of the Maiatla with the Naked Canadian.
Look for the second edition.


The true-life adventures of a family of four that sets forth to circumnavigate the world. A compelling voyage of discovery and often-humorous misadventure. Candidly chronicled.
