Episodes 1 and 2 cover the boat buying process subscribe to follow our adventure down to the Bahamas!

Fair winds,
Kate!

Re: Live aboard video blog!! MA to Bahamas

Just watch the first two episodes. Nice stuff.

Looks like a decent boat. Did you keep the name?

Good luck and fair winds,

Jesse

Re: Live Aboard Video Blog! MA to Bahamas

Kate and Wes, We're thrilled to see your posts and video. We headed south on our first boat, a 30' sloop, 42 years ago. We're still cruising and enjoying living aboard. A caution! .... this decision could be a terminal condition!

They are up to 5 or 6 now. Last couple were about bringing the boat from RI up to Scituate MA.

Good stuff. Fun to watch a couple of newbies out there having fun.
