We’re Buying a New(er) Boat!


Okay, this has been in the planning for some time now.  We realized probably as early on as 2012 that our Columbia was not going to have enough room for the water and provisions that we planned on carrying for extended voyaging.  We want to carry at least six months of provisions and I wanted at …

2 years planning, 2 years sailing…was it worth it? ABSOLUTLY!!!

From an external source (unedited): For 2 years I planed, read, and refitted a boat to safely take me anywhere I’d like to go……And then I left, The route was unclear and vague, The boat was strong and reliable, but not ” perfect “. Yet when I turned the corner leaving the bay behind me …

What a Relaxing Day

Well, we made it to the marina – FINALLY! It was a nice evening. Started out this weekend with the idea that we were not going to do any work, but were only going to sit on our behinds and relax. We met David, a friend, on the docks. He had brought us a dinner …

Breakfast at the Marina


Morning has broken and we decided to head down to California Cafe for breakfast. A quaint little restaurant with a nice staff. Plenty of good food on the menu. We ordered eggs and sausage for me, and an omelet for her. We wait and she is intently playing on her computer. We'll do a review …

Office Moved


Not really, but I wish…  We decided to stay at the boat a bit longer and work from the boat this weekend.  Besides not having any place to plug in, the picnic area at the marina is a great place to de-stress and get a bit of office work done, too.

Hanging Out at the Sailboat

After several weeks of being stuck in our office (our other home), we finally got a break in our schedule so that we could head down to our second home and just hang out for a while.  No projects, no work, just relaxation.  We watched a movie, played on our laptops, and just vegged.  It …

Weekend Work – The NavSlide Pedestal Mount

This weekend we added a mount to our steering that will allow us to mount our GPS, and anything else we wish, to a very versatile mount system that swivels and lets us slide to our instruments view better. As a disclosure, I was sent this unit as an “evaluation unit”.  I will add that …
