Auf Wiedersehen

As a new chapter in our adventures begins, another has come to an end. The end of this chapter was painful, having to say goodbye to Lexy and Pebbles. The German phrase, Auf Wiedersehen, roughly translates to: I hope to you see you again. This phrase is much better than "goodbye." Goodbyes are ...

Sailing Bahamas: Georgetown to Thompson Bay via Calabash Bay

Our journey has been amazing so far. Although living on a boat full-time, and cruising, comes with its own set of challenges, we have been able to see places that will remain unvisited by most others. We're so excited to get to share these memories with you, and take you along for the ...

Background: Some catamarans have a mechanical link between the steering wheel and ...

Short Stay in the Berry Islands

We had planned to spend quite a bit more time exploring the Berry Islands, but there weren't many anchorages that would have kept us off a lee shore overnight. Exploring the Berry Islands would probably be much more enjoyable during times of the year when the wind is not consistently clocking around every ...

After 22 Hours at Sea, We’re Back in Chub Cay

We are so excited to be back out on the ocean, this time for real (see last blog post). After our 22 hour journey from Fort Lauderdale to Chub Cay in the Bahamas, we're starting to remember why we love doing this. Crossing the Gulf Stream was easy. We got confirmed our crossing window ...

Update from Seamlessly: Anchored in Crystal Clear Waters

We have been anchored in the Bahamas for the last few weeks, enjoying the crystal clear water, and catching up on work that has been piling up. Wait... that was a dream. We are still at Lauderdale Marine Center, a boatyard in Fort Lauderdale. Sure, we'd rather be cruising and recharging. But instead, we're ...
