Summary Gary Fisher always thought there must be more to life than a car in the garage and a mortgage round his neck, and now he plans to find out. He wants to see if it's possible for a welder from Warrington in the UK to take on the middle class dream and buy an ocean going yacht and sail his wife and twin toddlers to America.But the only way he can afford his dream, is to do all the restoration work on the boat himself. Over two gruelling years he spends every penny, and every spare minute of his time attempting to get the boat on the water.However, as the yacht nears completion, his marriage falls apart.This film charts the emotional journey of a man whose desire to build a better life for his family puts him at risk of losing them entirely.PRODUCTION DETAILSExecutive Producers: Tim Carter and Simon Ford; Series Producer: James Nutt for 4TV UK
