My Review:

Clement Scheutz is a 50 year old man who has raised two grown up sons who married and is now divorced.  He has spent the last seven years sailing the Caribbean with Samantha his much younger and luscious girlfriend.

They are sailing on an old schooner named "Panacea" which has more than two masks and is a 65 foot wooden-hulled boat built in the 1920's that was used as a British racing boat.  They soon dock on a Caribbean Island because they need to save some money since they are flat broke.

Clement visits a small restaurant "El Tapon" managed by thirty + Migdala the granddaughter of the owner.  He's danced with her five years ago at a party and he realizes there is a sparkle in her eyes.  She makes him an offer he can't refuse - help her in the kitchen and he can have the left over food at the end of the day.
