We started our boat renovation journey nearly Four Years ago with a dream of sailing a sailing adventure. While many people think sailing is all smooth seas, sunshine, sunsets, and beautiful beaches, it’s also a lot of hard work and can be incredibly challenging, we have laughed, cried and questioned a lot of our decisions within these past few years , but we wouldn’t change a thing and we hope you continue your journey along with us as we near the final few months of our boat renovation. It cannot be denied that sailing the world increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living and other lifestyles is fantastic for the mind and soul. We cannot wait to travel the seas and follow the path that the wind will take us.
