The (unplanned) End of our Bahamas Sailing Trip

In our last blog post, we shared our first few stops in Eleuthera on our way down to the Exumas. With every day of being here, we understand more and more why people fall in love with The Bahamas. There are many reasons why one would fall in love with these beautiful islands, ...

Sailing to Eleuthera and Loving The Bahamas

We had no idea what we were getting ourselves into when we left Abacos. Our calm overnight sail down to Eleuthera turned into a rough and agonizing experience. After only 4 hours of an 18-hour journey we ended up having to drop our mainsail, roll in the headsail and turn on the motors... ...

Catamaran Sailing the Abacos Sea

Last time we checked in, we were about to sail The Whale and were a bit nervous about entering and exiting our very first cut. Thankfully we made it, and the last 2 weeks aboard Seamlessly have been the most-pleasant so far. Day by day, we're getting more and more comfortable navigating, raising ...

Our First 2 Weeks Sailing The Bahamas

After finishing up service items in Fort Lauderdale with Just Catamarans and MultiTech, it was time to set off on our very first solo adventure, or should we say duo adventure because it was only the two of us operating SV Seamlessly? Leanne’s dad came to join us, to make sure we didn't ...

Just Catamarans VS MultiTech Marine

Also see: MutliTech Update: Anchored in Crystal Clear Waters... If you've been following our adventures on this blog or on our Instagram account, you already know that we are entirely new to boating. We bought our 60-foot sailing catamaran in September and decided to do a bit of work on her before ...

They Call Them “Marriage Savers”

We are starting to accept that a 60-foot catamaran is a big boat, even though we don't feel Seamlessly is big. This is probably because it is our first boat and we have nothing to compare it with. All of our training captains, friends, marina-neighbors, contractors, and generally everyone else recommended that we should ...

Our (less than awesome) Sailboat Buying Experience

As of today, we are the proud owners of a beautiful 60-foot sailing catamaran; a 2006 Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera 60. This post is an uncensored summary of our experience, including the good and the bad. There are many YouTube videos and blog posts floating around the internet that made the boat purchasing process look ...

Trawler or Catamaran?!

We started out with a dream of sailing around the world, exploring and discovering - then we started to research and quickly concluded that our assumption was correct; it's not as easy as it sounds. Although we love the look of monohull sailboats, it didn't take us long to strike monohull sailboats from our list. ...

We are buying a catamaran

It's official, we've made an offer on a catamaran; a stunning Fountaine Pajot Eleuthera! Yes, you read that right: we are trading in the wheels and roads for seas and SAILS! Do we know how to sail? No. Have we ever lived on a boat? No. Do we have experience living in tight spaces ...

Abert Lake

After spending a few days at Annie Creek Sno-Park, we decided to continue on and ended up at Lake Abert in Oregon. The smoke from the forest fires lingered for a day, but then it cleared out. We only spent a couple of days here, partly because of the smell and also because we wanted ...
