End of Summer 2009 Tropical Lifestyle Update

Well, we've almost got Puff's engine installed. We are in the process of having custom mounts welded by Pete, Brian's brother. We then have to install a new exhaust system and probably get a new prop blade. I can't wait to hear this boat's heartbeat again. We have made progress on our house plans for Long Island, Bahamas. For anyone that doesn't know already, we purchased a lot on Long Island, Bahamas in 2006 on our way back from our epic Caribbean Sailing Trip.

We plan to begin building on that lot this winter. We have had plans drawn up by an architect here on Ocracoke. It looks really good. Next step is to get a materials list together. In November, we will sail down to the Bahamas. We will have a container full of building materials shipped to LI in December and get to work. That's it for the update. After 2 seasons of not sailing to the Bahamas, I can't wait to go back!!!


  1. It's so nice to see an update! Glad you're well....anxious for you to get back to the Bahamas. Can't wait to hear how it all goes.

    Love ya!
