Looking for a Catamaran Cruising Blog?

If you found this blog via a link from a cruising site ~ we did cruise Mexico on our Ocean 49 cat for a season. See the first text box on the right for links to our preparations, trip down Baja, life in Mexico, cruising and trip back up to SoCal. Unfortunately we are back to the grind in the USA...

The Big Move!

Yesterday we moved!
Yep, packed all of our bags, boxed everything up, labeled the boxes, wrapped the glasswear in newspaper, un-tied the docklines, drove the boat from one harbor to the one about 5 miles up the coast and re-tied the docklines.

Actually I did nothing.
Christopher and Jon Greene helped Jim.
I drove from one side of the harbor to work.
Drove home to the other harbor.Ahh!
Friends and neighbors again!
Stanwich came for a visit.
Lourdes & John Francis came for happy hour.
Randy and Nena looked from their dock over at us.
John and Jennifer got excited... even though they were in Palm Springs.
Lots of "Welcome Homes" and one "There goes the neighborhood" on spacebook facebook!

And on Monday morning when I work in Anchors Way Boatyard in Ventura?
I can leave 2.5 minutes before I am supposed to be at work!
And still be early!

What a cool way to stash your kayaks! Enjoy your new digs.

So. Are there any more 40' multihull liveaboard slips these days in Ventura Hbr? Howz the wait list?

Jim and Heather on Meerkat said...

Bliss - Yeah, except the yaks stretch out the nets after awhile... it's ice hockey net!

Chris C - possibly! Ventura Isle had some for us, but they wanted to rent us the entire end tie. They did have one sharing an end-tie with a Fountain Pajot - you might fit there - we were too big. Who are you & what do you have?
