Always wanted to sail. It all started in 2009 when we acquired a 27ft Catalina. We did quite a bit of sailing in Narraganset Bay. On a weekend trip to Block Island on Salut!, we realized the boat was to small for what we had in mind. In March of 2011 Black Pearl came into our lives. She is a 38ft. [...]Catalina Sparkman & Stephens design with a 4'8" shoal draft. Our life of sailing has begun. We hope to live on her part of the year when we retire, but for now we'll just sail the weekends away.
