pirate Liveaboard Article in Sail Magazine - by ME!

It's official, the September issue of SAIL is on the news stands and I have a feature story about living aboard. In fact, it's a cover story and my son is over the moon that his photo (with our living space in "reality mode" ie messy!) is on the cover (it's a smaller photo inset to the larger cover shot).

RedCharlotte and RebelHeart graciously allowed me to interview them and they are featured in the article too! Along with some other liveaboards from San Francisco, St. Martin, and the Chesapeake Bay.

Did that make ANY sense? Anyhow, I am also excited about the fact that the editor of the magazine tied his monthly essay to my article too!

:joy:

I am going to TRY to link to the article here if that's ok?
SAIL | See Inside Page 1 | Sep-09 | Zinio Digital Magazines & Books

The story is on page 45 and the editor's essay is page 4. :love

(schoonerdog's wife, Cindy)

Congratulations Cindy! That's awesome. I will anxiously await my papaer copy of sail to read the whole thing. And also congrats to Rebel and Charlotte for their cameo!

Well done!

Nice job Cindy. My copy of SAIL came today, and I hadn't opened it yet before reading your post. It caught my attention because my wife and I are closing on our next boat in a week, a Passport 456 center cockpit, and we plan on sailing her to the Caribbean for the beginning of what we hope will be an extended cruising lifestyle. We've in our early-50's, and have no kids, just our dog, and we're ready for something different. Your story resonated. Thanks for sharing it with us.

Congratulations, Cindy!

Your writing career is off to a flying start. Magazines are much more receptive to previously published authors.

Good job Cindy, As another livaboard, I could certainly relate to the way of life we love so much. It is not always easy, but it is almost always fun

Thank you everyone for the kind words!

I have been published in SAIL five times now, and I also contribute regulary to a regional sailing magazine called Spinsheet and I have written for Lats & Atts. My actual career is script writing and before my son was born directing and producing TV shows. But homeschooling my son and an iffy economy has made the TV & video work a little slow. So magazine work is keeping me off the streets and out of trouble

Anyone need a video produced? :lol

Thank you again for all of the support!!

Yep, read it too. Great article, your boat looks more like a condo compared to my 36' monohull. LOL. Nice job.

I'll be the first one to say we have plenty of space on our 44-foot catamartan... but I also spent 5 years working for HGTV and a producer/ director, so I know how to stage a shot

I always say we have a big boat/ small home depending on your point of view.

Thank you for all of the kind words!!
