The Sea is My Wife
Paperback | English
Donald Cairncross Todd was born in Wellington and lived his formative years there before being sent to Nelson College for his secondary education. During his growing up in Eastbourne he and a friend built a small launch that they steamed across Cook Strait to the Marlborough Sounds. After serving an electrical apprenticeship and a time in the Chatham Islands he went back to the “Sounds” where he became involved in a guest house and launch charter work. Later an electrical contracting business was started and covered the top of the South Island. The sea was always his first love and after many years, and vessels, Don is now officially “retired” from both electrical and commercial boating. Now in his mid seventies, in his retirement, he still wires boats, houses and commercial buildings.
