"The Wooden Nickel" is a boat. Its owner, Lucky Lunt, is an endangered species: a lobsterman who works the same Maine waters as his father. But the world is changing fast--and soon he is embroiled in a turf war that forces him to abandon all the rules: family, health, finance, and even the rules of the sea.
