Sailboat Maintenance – Bottom Work

Approaching our second sailing season! Which means it’s time to get our lady prepped for the seas. Like any vehicle, maintenance is required except a boat is a little different than what we’ve been used to in terms of “vehicle maintenance”. Having the boat on the hard has bee

Decommissioning our boat

It’s been a week since we tucked away our gal for the cruising season. We left her in Green Cove Springs, FL We chose this marina for several reasons; affordable, long term storage, a do-it-yourself boat yard, and it’s located 25 miles inland with less exposure to storm winds and surge.

Gulf Stream Crossing – Take two!

After an unforgettable 3 months sailing through the Bahamas we crossed the Gulf Stream back to Florida! Our first sailing season has been a crazy, fun, sometimes difficult, but mostly awesome adventure. It’s hard to believe how quickly the time passed. Wow. We’ve grown and learned so muc

Exuma Land & Sea Park – O’Brien’s Cay

Our second stop in the Exuma Land and Sea Park! This beautiful small cay is just North of Cambridge, offers great protection, and gin clear waters! It’s also adjacent to Little Halls Cay, aka, Johnny Depp’s private island…but no sign of Johnny during our stay, lol. We explored the

Cost of living on a sailboat?

Cost of living on a sailboat?

The big question. Before we decided on becoming full time cruisers we did hours worth of research on sailing forums hoping to find a “magical” number. Quitting jobs and selling belongs is a big decision and if you’re in the research phase it’s totally normal to be questioning

Ahhh Exumaaaa!

We made it to the E-X-U-M-A-S!! Our sights have been on this place since the beginning! After a week in Nassau, it was good to finally be on the move towards these beautiful islands. We had a new crew member join us from NYC, who made the crossing with us over to Norman’s Cay. Rough […]

Great Bahama Bank + Birds Cay

Wow are we seeing the Bahamas in an entirely different light lately! After an adventurous Gulf crossing to Bimini, this particular passage had us really excited because we got to cross the Great Bahama Bank! The Great Bank is made of limestone deposits and, scientists believe, was exposed to the ai
