Arnold, the anchor, introduces the different parts that make a boat work-- from the engine, to the electronics in the pilot house, to the rudder and propeller beneath the boat. He gives each a catchy name as he explains the jobs, and how important they all are in working together to move the boat over the water. Penny Talbot provided the rich colorful illustrations to accompany Arnolds tale. Her many years of cruising, her love of the sea and sea life, and her artistic talent combined to weave a magical look and feel to the story as it unfolded.
