Posted from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Our move is complete. But naturally… since it’s me… Things didn’t go exactly uhhh… normal? The plan was this. The night before I’d fire up the engines, then they day of my parents and aunt would come on over along with Mitch and we’d just toddle on over. Done. So […]

Posted from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This winter finally has come to a close just in time for more snow coming this coming Thursday apparently. Over this time I have not been idle but not a lot has been going on for the boat itself. I’ll have a post talking about some of the fun we […]

Posted from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Not to get cheesy or really pat myself on the back for this but our departure from TIM and off to Pier 4 was incredibly smooth. How smooth? Ya. So this time was literally the first time I had taken Pathfinder from dock to dock under any situation. The engines […]

Posted from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. So as seems to be my habit lately this post is VERY late. And I’ve actually written this one before part 2… There are a few reasons for that some of which is to attempt to word it correctly as it goes over what happened at St. Catharines. Although in […]

Posted from St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. Although I haven’t been posting with any regularity lately don’t take that for a lack of effort on my part. I’ve been trying to sit down and do a decent post to update what has been going on but life hasn’t been…. exactly…. squared away lately. Work has a […]

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 […]

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 […]

In my desperate struggle to attempt to catch up with my blog posts for the last few months I bring to you the story of the Canadian Captain Jack Sparrow. Please note that I put the date of this post to coincide as close as possible with the actual event. So hence why this looks […]

Here’s the finalĀ installmentĀ of Hurricane Sandy… And in true Josh style it’s several months late. First a quick confession. I had debated about not posting this as we were very close to possibly giving up and selling the boat out right after all the issues we had over winter which is why this blog hasn’t been […]

So as Sandy has finally passed us and we’ve managed to weather it relatively fine in comparison to other locations I finally have a few minutes to write an update as to what happened to us during the storm. First I’ll tell you what our plan basically was for the storm. Batten down the hatches […]
