Hello all! Good times have been had lately. The boat prep and learning curve is lessening and things are looking really good. We’ve had a few hiccups and the apparently well known adage about the cost of owning a boat is accurate…And yep, everything is priced in thousands…. I managed to sew the sails toContinue reading “Captain’s Log 7/26/20”
Join the fun as we check out our old and expired life raft, plus test out our NEW automatic life vests! Safety first!
I couldn’t figure out how to add pictures so you’ll have to read… Time for another update! All is well In hot and humid Florida, we’ve been spending almost every day on the cat and enjoying getting lots of work done. The boat was left in fantastic shape when we bought her, but we neededContinue reading “Captain’s Log 7/18/20”
This was the FINAL phase of our 5-step process to get out to our boat in Florida. Join our 1700 mile road trip as we avoid tropical storms and hurricanes in order to hurry across the country to our new-to-us catamaran!
The first leg of our road trip out to Florida to buy a boat consists of a stop at our little property in the deserts of Santa Fe, New Mexico! Take a tour of our off-grid cabin and property, meet our awesome neighbor Katharina, hear about the boat we bought (sight unseen!) and learn whyContinue reading “DESTINATION: New Mexico // Tour of our property PLUS boat purchase and name reveal!”

After doing some research on what I wanted (UPFContinue reading “GEAR REVIEW // ROXY “Swim The Sea” Long Sleeve Rashguard”
Our effort to prepare an affordable (and big enough) space to store our belongings that are not coming with us to Florida.
We moved out of our house and headed down to Randi’s parent’s farm. While we were there, we had LOTS of adventures PLUS bought a boat!
That’s right! We are buying a boat and don’t even know how to sail! (But we’re learning!) Our new video is coming out soon and it’s all about the process we went through to find a boat including the how, what, when, where and WHY!
Just wrapped up my ASA 101/103 courses and they were fantastic. I learned that I know so little not only about sailing but about being in tune with the ocean and the wind. I sailed successfully and fully and managed to run a 20 mile sail without assistance. The instructor I had was a saltContinue reading “Captain’s Log 6/22/20”
