We are a sailing family of 3 - Eric, Loren, Rivers, age 6, and faithful security guard (dog) Zeke.  In 2019, we made the leap, sold everything on land we owned, and sailed off to the Caribbean aboard our 46' monohull, Cecilia.  Now, after pressing on through the uncertain waters of the pandemic, we've sailed the Bahamas, done 2 circuits of the Windward and Leeward Islands, circumnavigated Puerto Rico, ridden out hurricanes and Covid, all while living aboard, working aboard, and generally trying to stay afloat!  Now, we've sold Cecilia and purchased a 1992 Privilege 482 catamaran, "Ophelia". She's rough around the edges, but all she needs is our love.  So we've begun a brand new Caribbean journey while bringing her back to the beauty she once was, with an eye on an Atlantic crossing.  Join us for the ride!

We're in the middle of TWO boat deals, trying to usher both along while juggling moving from one boat to the other, preparing one for sail, and fixing a laundry list of problems on the new one.

Episode #204

It's been a long, exhausting, stressful road, navigating a changing budget, the sail of Cecilia, and the logistics of trying to make this move from our position living aboard in the Caribbean.  Finally...we meet the new boat!
