Connecticut Waters is a tribute to Connecticut’s maritime roots, both past, and present. The book takes readers on a nautical journey exploring the many ways Nutmeggers use our lakes, rivers, sounds, and shores for industry, education, and recreation. From boat builders to antique, power, and sailing vessels, to lobster shacks, the oyster and fishing industries, historic ferries, nautical arts, lighthouses and islands, charter boats, maritime festivals and celebrations, and more, this book showcases how these waterways have defined our culture and shaped our heritage as a state.

The book is 224 pages and lavishly illustrated with amazing photos. It is a perfect companion to Davis’s first book, A Connecticut Christmas: Celebrating the Holiday in Classic New England Style. To purchase the book click here.  It is available as a hardcover book or as a kindle.
