This is a fast-paced documentary with gorgeous photography that will give you a first hand look at the cruising lifestyle. Join Bob and Kaye aboard their 36 foot sloop, "Bettie" as they cruise from Los Angeles to the Bahamas via the Panama Canal on the first leg of their sailing adventure.

"Bettie" is based on a Cascade 36 hull. It was custom molded for Bob by Yacht Constructors in Portland Oregon back in 1978. Four years and lots and lots of man hours later Bob splashed her. "Bettie" has a raised freeboard that allows for a flush deck design.

Over 10,000 miles have passed under Bettie’s keel since Bob and Kaye left Los Angeles in 2004. They sailed down the west coast to Panama, through the Canal, east to Cartagena, Columbia then north to Honduras and east across the Caribbean to the Bahamas. That's the focus of this video.

Sadly, Robert Steadman past away in late 2010. Bob's family and friends scattered his ashes in his beloved Pacific Ocean. Bob, Fair Winds and Following Seas.

Re: Own Cruising with Bettie: L.A. to the Bahamas

Just curious, do you own the distribution rights to the videos you sell access to? I ask because I am friends with the current owners of Bettie and they have the video linked to your site.

Edited to add: I ask because I am actually interested in seeing Ice Blink but want to be respectful of copy wright.
