Me the Boat and a Guy Named Bob is the latest book by C.E. Bowman. It is the autobiography of a California kid who took off in the early 70's to see the world. His journeys led him through Europe, down the East African coast and across several oceans to the shores of a magical Caribbean island and the building of a beautiful schooner. Drifting through these pages you will find a rogue’s gallery of penny stock hustlers, magicians, sea-gypsy philosophers, master boatbuilders, and even a few rock stars, all of whom in one way or another play their part. It is the tale of a boat, and an island, and a special time, a pinpoint in history filled with exceptional people, who through the magic of the universe came together for one last hurrah. A key player in this story is the enigmatic musician Bob Dylan. “I’m usually either in New York or on the West Coast or down in the Caribbean. Me and another guy have a boat down there,” he once said. Who was this ‘other guy’, what was this boat, and whatever happened to it? Over the years there has been lot of conjecture and misunderstanding going around concerning all of this. Finally, after forty years, here is the account to set the record straight.
