Good Morning from Baltimore!

Hey, All,

My name is Toni, hubby is Steve, Schip is Holly. We are new liveaboards in Baltimore, aboard Lagoon 380 "Peregrine". Just wanted to introduce us, and get started with the questions!!

We are looking forward to being members of the forum, and the liveaboard community.

Thanks, James. We will for now be staying in Baltimore. Steve is still working, and I'll be looking for work soon too. We have a "3-5 yr plan", so we are just getting started.

I will post pics of the boat guardian (Holly) as soon as I can retrieve some from the other computer!

Thanks very much. We've actually had our boat here for two years, but just moved onto the boat a week ago.

We like it here a lot - lots to do and see.

Thanks, Erica!

First "shakedown" cruise will probably be to the Keys, then the west coast of Florida. Not any time soon, unfortunately, but after that, we plan to hit the Bahamas.

We're located at the Baltimore Marine Center (Lighthouse Point). Lucky enough to have a slip for our cat!

Welcome to the forum! The Admiral and I spent a lovely couple of weeks in Baltimore last July/August. The city was a surprise for us, as we didn't expect it to be so nice, but we simply loved the Fells Point area and met lots of very nice people all around. We stayed at the Living Classrooms Marina (aka the Center Dock Marina) on the east side of the Inner Harbor. Although not a conventional marina, the people were very nice and the price couldn't be beat. More liveaboards there rather than transients, but they took our 44' cat just fine.

Thanks for the welcome; we are just around the corner from Fells Point. We walked over there recently with Buddy and Melissa from "Indigo Moon" to check out the festival. Had a great time.

BTW, we looked at a St. Francis 44 in Pasadena, Md. before we bought our Lagoon. Very nice boat; congrats on yours!

Thanks, SkiprJohn; I actually look forward to our posts, too. Unfortunately, it'll be a long wait for all of us. We won't be going for a few years yet.

We do have a nothing (yet) little blog we've been keeping. Hopefully since we are living aboard now, we'll have more interesting things to blog about.
