Boat life: What we’ll miss & won’t miss

In case you missed it on Instagram, Sea duction has sold! Bittersweet *sniff sniff* Our full-time cruising lifestyle has had it’s ups and downs like any other way of life. So, in the interests of providing helpful information to those just starting out or considering whether they should toss every

SOLD! Fair winds ol’ gal

14 countries, hundreds of islands, 686 days aboard, 5,952 nautical miles and countless memories made! I still can’t believe we flew home with only 3 bags and 2 backpacks!! Hopefully Sea duction’s new owners will get to enjoy some of those same awesome experiences. Why we sold? Lifes

Time to splash

We had a fun summer on land over hurricane season but we were also on the move a lot! 2019 was certainly a very busy year for travel. After securing Sea duction on land and leaving BVI in July 2019 we bounced around the US for a few months; Florida, Georgia, California, Nashville, Chicago, North Ca

Cruising the South Coast of Puerto Rico

The South Coast of Puerto Rico is full of beautiful landscapes, warm people, fascinating attractions and intriguing cities. We’ve spent a month+ in PR and are amazed at how much it has to offer. The island itself is only 110 miles long (west to east) but offers everything from pristine beaches to

Golden Hour

Who doesn’t love a beautiful sunset? There’s something about the world being bathed in that red and yellow light that makes everything look extra magical 🙂 Today, I got a notification on my phone reminding me that we’ve been liveaboards for FIVE HUNDRED DAYS!! Holy moly that’s

Passages: Turks & Caicos to the DR!

Down the ‘Thorny’ path we go! It’s a rite of passage for any cruiser making their way to the Caribbean, and this particular passage is considered the roughest leg of the journey due to harsh seas and the wind generally coming from the wrong direction. Not gonna lie, knowing this m

Boat work…in Paradise

Happy 2019! 🙂 I once read that owning a boat and full-time cruising means doing a lot of boat work in exotic places…well, it’s 100% true! Half the battle is just “diagnosing” the problem. Then you add limited resources in the islands on top of that and it gets stressful real quick

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
