A New Chapter

We are buying a new (well, new to us) boat — put in the offer today and it was accepted!!!

It’s a Gemini 105MC — a 34′ catamaran — in Key Largo, and our plan is to spend winters on it in the Keys and possibly beyond.  Busy arranging the survey and summer storage today, but yes, we are super excited!!!

More coming on it — very internet challenged in the motel.

I'd like to know about...

    Congratulations! We have the same boat, hull 755, and we absolutely love it! We have been living aboard for about a year and a half and are on our way back to NJ. It’s the perfect boat for us. Good luck with yours!!

    Congratulations Caroline! We are so happy for you. As you know, catamarans are our “thing” at catamaranguru.com (LOL) and I know that you guys will be super happy with your cat. We look forward to hear all about your impressions and thoughts on the Gemini. We have a buyer from Tampa also in the process of buying a Gemini 105MC. It seems to be a VERY popular model. Please check in with us any time you are in Fort Lauderdale!

    You’ll be a lot happier in Florida with that draft than we are with 5.5 feet! Congrats!

    I was wondering when you’d give in and return to THE LIFE! Congratulations!!

    And thanks for your wisdom! I was able to share your “Place of Duty” dog tips with my ex-mother-in-law who is anticipating going in for surgery soon and was trying to figure out ways to not have to walk the dog during the early stages of recovery. She was very excited to have options to try!

    Thank you again for your website and discussions!!!

    PS: Your fantastic recipe book is coming with me when I head to California for the birth of my new grand-daughter!!

    Having lived and sailed in Miami for almost twenty years, you are going to love it. Wish I were back there to raft up sometime. Love your sight and love the info you provide.
