Dennis K. Biby (BY-BEE) is a liveaboard, single-handed sailor that has difficulty living in one locale for more than a couple of years. He has survived as a naval officer, electrical engineer, software developer, entrepreneur, and others. Dennis wrote Molokaʻi Reef while living aboard Sun Po in Hawaiʻi and occasionally anchored off Molokaʻi and Maui.
He and his current boat, Ferrity, reside on the Chesapeake Bay – for now.

Good descriptions of sailing and the islands.
Not enough murder mystery, and an overabundance of environmental preaching.
The doobie smoking macaw was probably the best character in the book.

I laughed out loud several times while reading Molokai Reef. Biby has created characters that remind me of Tim Dorsey's Serge combined with the long ago Travis McGee.
This is mystery novel with the requisite murder but the reluctant protagonist often opines about current events while yearning to continue his sailing adventures.
Hiaasen, Evanovich, Barry, Dorsey, and Christopher Moore fans should enjoy this read.
Look forward to more of Gybe.
