This is not a real post. Which is odd cuz here it is. Anyways, what this is here for is to list out a few resources that can help people get an idea of what sort of boats are available. Let me first say that this is not a FULL list since that’d be too […]

The Snowball effect of boat repair and renovations

Boat, Renovations

Just a heads up this post is less about progress and more about attitude. No pictures. Just me rambling. Enjoy! This winter being as hard as it was has made a lot of people that have been putting off renovations on their boat re-evaluate their decision. Many of which have started doing serious repair on […]

Finally a good weekend descended on Toronto. Warm weather, no rain, blue skies… So naturally I had a migraine. Ugh. Despite that I, along with a lot of pills, decided to make the most of it anyways. So what did Jeannie and I get up to? Well we went boating on both days in our […]

Posted from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. So it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Primarily because I haven’t had much to talk about for the last little while (a bit hard to believe I know). So let me do a quick recap for what’s gone on. Winter aboard a boat can be a lot of fun […]

Honestly at this point my somewhat loose theory that Webasto’s are part of some evil German scientist plot to overthrow the civilized world seems less like a theory… and more like a plausible reality. So what happened THIS time right? One night my wife and I get back to the boat and flip on the […]

Life, I have found, doesn’t give a rodents fart for your carefully laid plans. Case in point, this past month and a bit. Originally I had hoped that by now I’d be insulating the v-birth whereas I’m still trying to get around to attaching the portholes to the hull. So what happened? Let me regale […]

So originally I was thinking of doing this as 1 massive post but there is simply too much going on for it to all fit in 1 post. WHAT is it that we’ve been up to then? Well we’re building ourselves a master stateroom. Although this is a fairly large project in and of itself […]

As many know although I’ve grown up around boats for most of my life it’s a rare occurrence when I’m actually given the helm. I figure this is due to my being fairly quick and nimble which makes me a better asset to have on deck vs behind the wheel. If something needs doing it’ll […]

New Dingy for us!

For all 4 years of our living on Pathfinder we’ve had a little inflatable dingy from HMP for our use with a small 6.6HP motor on the back. This has done us very well for quite a while but we’ve always had a slight problem with it. The issue being that during winter we need […]

No seriously. Apparently going to sleep around midnight was only the 1/2 time show to a series of “Did that just happen?” events. Fortunately this one is a bit shorter to explain… But basically… While I was brushing my teeth in the head I looked out the porthole and promptly did a spit take. I […]
