Our favorite items on board

Traveling by sailboat is fun and exciting – sometimes exhausting, frustrating, and boring when not prepared with things that will give you the most comfort. Thankfully, we’ve spent enough time on our boat to accumulate a list of tried-and-true items that make our live-aboard lives fun/easy/h

It’s our ONE YEAR boat-aversey! As we look back on the good, the bad, and the amazing! I gotta say it’s been easy sharing all the fun times and pictures of beautiful white sandy beaches and palm trees, because they really are some special moments that we’ll never forget! But what if I

Summer lovin’

Summer should get a speeding ticket, seriously! Our summer/hurricane season break was filled with lots of fun adventures! Feeling grateful that we were able to have this time to freely travel the country, stopping along the way to see friends and family. But what we loved most about this summer was

ICW – Northbound P2

Part-two of our ICW adventure is about all of the land fun we had along the way! Part-one was more about navigation, bridges, and stories as first-time ICW travelers. But our favorite part of cruising the ICW was taking our time to explore parts of the coast of Florida that we hadn’t seen since we

ICW – Northbound P1

Proudly checking off sailing The Intracoastal Waterway, a.k.a “ICW”, a.k.a “The Ditch”. Check. 🙂 The ICW is basically the superhighway for boats! This waterway allows cruisers to travel along the east coast without having to enter the Atlantic Ocean. The plus side to this

Bimini…Spring Break 2018

Our original plan was to start traveling in February, but with some additional projects, boat work, etc it didn’t work out that way and we didn’t want to rush the process. Instead our Gulf stream crossing just happen to align with Spring Break. Now I didn’t think of Bimini as a Spring Brea

Maiden Voyage of S/V Sea Duction

We’re officially cruisers! I cannot believe it’s been almost two weeks since making our first crossing! We sailed her from Royal Palm Marina in Dania Beach, FL  and over to Bimini, Bahamas! Our first stop in our Bahamas adventure. The trip over is a fairly easy sail, however weather win

A beautiful day at the office

We are going somewhere, people! The Coast Guard finally sent us our paper work 🙂 Beyond excited, as we’ve been anxiously waiting for this moment. After 58 days, we’ve finally taken the boat out of the slip. Sea trials are meant to test the “seaworthiness” of the boat, electronics

And so the adventure begins – LA to FL

‘Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.’ – Helen Keller. December 19, 2017 we started our 3,200+ mile trek from Los Angeles to South Florida! A good deal of planning was necessary in making our trip a successful, stress-free journey but more importantly a fun and fl
