A Close Family Pushing Against the Winds of Society’s Expectations

We live, work, and boat-school aboard our sailboat, OHANA.

Join us on our adventure of living our dream of freedom and family.

Well... It's been quite a long time since we updated! We have been very busy, traveling, working, homeschooling, and trying to relax just every now and then!

Check out what we've been doing with photos, links to cool stuff, and summaries here: https://photos.app.goo.gl/wJ2DmwCat6m78TZh7

One year ago today we sailed off on our new adventure. We have come a long way from that stress filled first sail from Boston to Salem. Since then we have sailed over 1500 miles down the entire eastern seaboard, made bunches of new friends as well as lifelong memories. Our lives have changed so much with new careers and freedom, and it has only just begun! We are anxious to see what our second year has in store for us! Happy Birthday Ohana!

Good luck to all our fellow Floridians and those in FL waiting out this storm. We will very likely (hopefully) have it much easier than the Bahamas. Please consider helping them in any way you are able over the coming months and remember their primary source of income (over 80%) is tourism...

Since Ohana can't move very well as a land yacht, she morphed into an F150 for an extended road trip. 🤣

The short: too much work (Ray & Stef jobs) + too much heat (thanks FL) = Ohana wasn't done in time so she stays put for a bit while we travel.

We will update soon but the short is we are dreaming of getting back on the water soon!

Here's some crazy dreaming: this amazing, inspiring and all out awesome yacht is for sale. Ray and Stefanie had the luck of touring it (and spending quite a bit of time speaking with her gracious Captain) at the West Palm boat show back in March.

What do you do when you have water between your ballast and keel? Suck it out by vacuum bagging it...
