On the vacation of a lifetime in Antarctica, partners Doug McClelland and Tony Tucker received a phone call - it was their worst nightmare. Their beloved floating home, moored in an exclusive location in downtown Vancouver, had capsized during a freak snow storm. With cherished possessions ruined, and the house a wreck, Doug and Tony were not beaten, but decided to re-build. They enlist one of the world's best naval architects, Alfonso Sotres, to design an unsinkable new floating home. Once complete a team of marine engineers has to sail the house down the busy Fraser River and out into the Strait of Georgia to get it to the new moorings. Will the house float when launched? And can it survive a perilous sea journey to reach the moorings?
