The new blog has been a while coming as I struggled to come to terms with giving up El Tiburon and our sailing adventures. This past week, Darrell and I made a happy and firm recommitment to the cruising life. Scrimshaw is part of our new cruising adventure. We have decided to turn RIGHT, instead of our typical LEFT, when we head into the Pacific Ocean this spring. We love and treasure every moment spent in Mexico, and intend to return. In the meantime, we are eager to explore the multitude of islands and cultures of the Pacific Northwest to Alaska. We've been scouring Guide Books and Blogs on the territory, and were surprised to learn a lot of cruisers spend years wandering around these parts of the colder, mistier, greener, sea life rich islands. We have read about wonderful spring into early fall music festivals and outdoor markets that are a vibrant part of many these charming ports. We are looking forward to joining the cruising community and make more lifetime like-minded friends.
We thought long and hard about the kind of boat we wanted for this journey. The Grand Banks 42 Trawler is well-respected and a popular boat in the PNW. She is sturdy and strong with pleasing lines. A Form Follows Function kind of vessel, just like El Tiburon. Scrimshaw is boat worthy of our lofty ambitions. I invite your to follow allow with as we prepare for our new adventure and to enjoy our future posts in the new blog.
If you happen to come across that special Tayana 47 in your travels, she still bears the name El Tiburon, give her a shout out for us.
You will find the link to m/v Scrimshaw in the right column under, "My Blog List".
Fair Winds, Always. Sarah, Darrell, and Sparky too
