We made it city side and I didn’t kill too many people!

Boat, Captains Log

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!

October 25, 2013

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 […]

So first off my brother in law is here for a week to see what life afloat is like. Today when I got back from work we decided to go off for a toddle in the dingy around the islands with him. Jeannie, Jonathan and myself (The 3 J-kateers?) went around Center Island, by RCYC […]

That took a bit longer than I expected

So as some of you know I tend to get some pretty spectacular migraines at times. And sometimes I don’t always make the best decisions while in this state. THAT BEING SAID I took our little dingy and motored around the entire Toronto Islands. It took a bit over an hour and it kinda got […]

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 […]

Boat, Captains Log, News

Here’s the final installment 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 […]

Quick update in between posts

November 24, 2012

Hey all. Sorry for the delay in the final installation of the Hurricane Sandy Saga but I’ve already got the next post after that being worked on as well. What I mean by that rambling sentence is that before I could even FINISH writing the 3rd post something else happened to Pathfinder that is blog […]

Hurricane Sandy 2012 part 2

November 23, 2012

And now we continue with the second instalment of “Holes in Boats and the people who live on them” in 3D. The next few days kinda passed in a weird blur for me as J and myself were kinda sleep deprived and I was knocked out of commission for a day due to migraines (probably brought on by the […]
