Seeking to honor the founders of the Maine Island Trail, and his ailing father, Doug Welch sets out on a 500-mile journey in his 17' Boston Whaler. Confronting the limitations of small-boat living and the challenges of the Maine coast, Welch tells the story of the Trail through close-up images of seven spectacular uninhibited islands and quotes from MITA’s founder. Based on the success of his two-week trip. He encourages viewers that perhaps they too can do it in a small boat.
