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...

Interesting Read

Found another interesting cruising book!
And no bug holes in it either!
About a woman who was widowed in 1927 with five young children.
She would cruise the Vancouver Island / British Columbia area each summer on her 25' power boat.
With all the kids.
Without a man.
Before GPS.
With really basic charts.
And lots of tides and weather to deal with.

If you can find it somewhere, we recommend it!

Sounds like an adventure.

Did you ever read Ice! by Tristan Jones? Very good read. My parents actually met him once, yonks ago.

I'd leave the kids though.

No, but if I see it will grab it. He would have been an intertesting man to meet.

The kids were actually really cool kids! Would almost make you want some.
