We met this cruising couple at TrawlerFest in our Building Cruising Confidence As A Couples University course. It’s so great to get follow up. We loved to share our experience with you and it shows!(read their note below)
Hi Chris and Alyse,
Just an update on “OUR UFF DA”. We left her at Portsmouth Va. on the 6th of July. We have enjoyed cruising, living aboard, great ports, and friends that have joined us and new ones made. Only minor generator and fuel line issues so far ,so have not been slowed down much. The biggest disappointment was not seeing the shuttle launch, did you get to see the last one? We will resume cruising the Chesapeake mid Aug. for 3+ weeks, and eventually leave her south of there for Nov. Dec. and resume southward in Jan. toward the Keys. I hope we can touch base along the way. No groundings in the ditch, just a few light touches of the bottom, so things have gone well so far!!!! Any suggestions as to stops heading back down that we may have missed going north? We plan to take more time heading south, and will be in Fla. most of the spring into June, maybe a trip to the Bahamas? The boat is a great fit for us!!!! Thanks for the help getting us going on this ” bucket list” adventure.
Regards, Rick and Lanna
