. . . making your boat life better with practical tips, reliable information, trusted product reviews and recommendations
Hi! I’m Carolyn Shearlock. For six years, I cruised the Sea of Cortez and Central America full-time with my husband Dave aboard Que Tal, our Tayana 37. And during that time, I learned a lot about what works – and what doesn’t.
Now we’re cruising aboard Barefoot Gal, a Gemini 105M catamaran — a very different boat, in a different locale, with a whole new set of challenges.
I hope you find the information useful. Thanks for reading The Boat Galley!
Every. Single. Thing. I. Do. I. Have. To. Learn. Nothing is familiar and the learning curve seems to go straight up. Hang on and listen in for ways to cope!
When I’m a little chilly, my Turkish Farmer’s Throw is just perfect — snuggly soft and the ideal weight. Great for cool evenings in the cockpit, a naptime coverup or extra warmth on the bed!
