Ernest Hemingway the Boater

Ernest Hemingway is perhaps the most famous boater to ever ply the seas. Editors Bill Pike and Charlie Levine discuss Hemingway’s prowess as a boat owner, author and angler. The editors share some of their personal experiences from visiting Hemingway’s home in Cuba, the Finca Vigía or “Lookout Farm,” where they got to see the Pilar with their own eyes and even sneak on board. They also talk about the new PBS documentary entitled “Hemingway” by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. Come aboard and learn more about Papa’s love of boating and what makes his vessel, the Pilar, the most important boat in American literature.
