Howdy from Vancouver
Island, British Columbia!
I was born and raised here in Victoria. After spending almost 20 years away we moved back about 10 years ago. It was a lifelong dream to live on a boat
and that has become a reality. After retiring we moved on to a small Campion 6 years ago and acquired our current
34’ Fairliner 4 years ago. We are full-time liveaboards and cherish this lifestyle. Living on the water
has exceeded my expectations. I’m particularly proud of my wife. When we were shopping
for a weekender after moving back to the island she got seasick just standing on the dock
. Now she loves being on the water
as much as I do. Life on board got a little more complicated 3 years ago when I had my foot amputated (old motorcycle injury) but I have adapted although dinghy
use is a bit of a challenge. “Frosty Morn” is on the hard
right now waiting for her new engines to be installed this winter
. Also taking this time to redesign the interior
. Plans are to splash her late spring/early summer next year.
Great forum and excited to be a part of your community.
