Family Cruising Site

If you haven't seen it, the Collins Family's site is worth reviewing:

Good review of their motivation, rennovation and cruise in process.

I also read the opening chapters of "Just Cruising" by Lisa Copeland yesterday-- another good book about cruising with kids.

Good link Jim, thanks! Their story is fascinating. I must see for those considering cruising with kids.

Hey Jim:

I've followed them since around Turkey Day. Haven't seen anything new in a while. I emailed them well actually my daughter did since she is the same age as the little girl on Zora. Didn't hear anything back. If you hear anymore updates on the site post a message. I'll do the same.
Fair Winds,


Between us there was, as I have already said somewhere, the bond of the sea. Besides holding our hearts together through long periods of separation, it had the effect of making us tolerant of each other's yarns -- and even convictions. Heart of Darkness
