And then there are those who want to finish all the projects … Continue reading Leg 1 – Portland to Rainer – May 20, 2019
Happy Monday Everyone. Well, our day to get underway has finally arrived. We're equal parts nervous, excited, and grateful. Nervous, because well, the big thing we've worked so hard for over the last several days, months, weeks, and years is becoming a reality. Excited for the same reasons. We're also really grateful - all the … Continue reading Departure Day is Finally Here!

Ah yes ... the dream. But are there dreams that come true without some sweat and tears? … Continue reading Our Boat Project LIST(s)

For the first time since December 2017 when we moved into the marine, about 50% of the fairways and slips are covered with ice. It's pretty … Continue reading Pick a Color. Any Color.

I was moved when I read how she would ask her grandkids “What have you done TODAY to make your dreams come true?” Such a lovely and inspiring question to ponder on.

I want to start this off to share that we are not experts at shopping for used boats. We are also not brokers, nor looking to make any money selling boats. We are merely interested in writing a little blurb on our experience, sharing what we learned with hopes to pass on a little tidbit. … Continue reading The Art of Boat Shopping
