S/V Karen M and Crew

Welcome aboard "Karen M", a 2003 Nauticat 42.

We visited Finland twice during construction,and were fortunate to have contracted for "Karen M" when the Yankee dollar bought lots of euros. The people at Nauticat (Siltala Yachts oy.) were a pleasure to deal with, and their construction technique allowed extensive customizing of her interior.

We managed to retire early (at 55) and move aboard "Karen M" (Named after our daughter, so she'd know how we blew her inheritance -- click on our homepage icon for more pix) in June 2003. Since then we have cruised the east coast (mostly outside) from Tampa Bay to the coast of Maine and are now in Ft. Lauderdale, temporarily delayed from our Bahamas/Caribbean plans by Peg's broken wrist (She tripped in the marina parking lot and recovery looks promising). We'll probably head north for the upcoming hurricane season, perhaps again to Maine.

I am a native of the Boston area , but I found my irreplacible first mate in the midwest. She's a retired nurse practitioner/clinical specialist in oncology. I am a retired fed and former nuclear submarine officer with some flying in my resume.

We enjoy meeting other cruisers and sincere wannabes, so look us up in Ft. Lauderdale over the next month.
