Help us Set Sail Donate now and help us start our voyage sooner!
What are we doing? Kathie and I are looking for a new adventure. We have the “Rusty Bucket” that we have been working on the restoration for the past year and half. Still has a ways to go, although we have been living on her. I am a truck driver, and it is about time to hang up the keys. For 20 years I worked on commercial vessels, and water runs in my blood. Now I want to share the thrills, trials, and beauty of living on the water with my family and you. Be sure to watch for our videos here and on youtube.
We are interested in getting a larger sailboat, a 34 -40 footer would make us the best sailing liveaboard. We are in the process of selling most everything we don’t need, so we can to head south for Florida and from there who knows where the wind will take us. During our voyages we will video document our trips bringing you into our lives-through the good and the bad as they come. You will be able to watch us here on liveaboardcruising.com and on our YouTube Channel
Now Meet the Crew!
So now you have put a face to the names (well almost, Moms name is Kathie, as her daughters is too so that is too confusing, so we stick with Mom! And Dad is Lester Water, well we will keep him as Dad too!)
We got the Mast up on GitUrDun, that was a chore! If you haven’t noticed, this boat is slightly modified, the “pop top” design doesn’t pop up any more, it is permanent. Making raising the mast to be done from the bow. But Kathie and I got it up and got our first look at he Genoa. It is filthy. It has been furled for over a year, laying on the ground, and went through two floods where it was underwater for almost a month.
More work…. More Money…. Please Donate! (click on image)- Yea this is where we ask you to help us out and donate.
