The day we first met!

She is a 1976 43 ft. Gulf Star Ketch. When we initially purchased her, she needed a lot of TLC. We spent a month “in the yard” or “on the hard” preparing her to be home. Since we moved aboard, we have continue to add creature comforts and other upgrades. Slowly but surely, she has become our home. She still has a lot of work to be done, but we have slowed down on projects so we are able to use her for intended purposes: sailing, adventures, and freedom! Oh, and learning to live aboard  a sailboat with 4 souls and 12 legs! (Catchy, huh?)
