Sailing with Celestial's Tripp

We are a Tripp 47 racing boat turned cruiser that we bought in Maine in 2009. We sailed it through the Panama Canal and up to Seattle then back to Mexico and over to Hawaii in 2012.

Since we got back to the house in 2016, the boat has been renewed! We toured the possibilities of having Celestial up in Seattle but didn't like the $$$ or our options.

We ended up having it at Hayden Island, OR, Salpare Bay Marina and can't say enough good things about our accommodations or their help.

Scott split his time working on the boat, our house and our rental house so he was busy. He was deciding where to have the boat hauled out and painted the sky blue you see in the picture, when a friend asked him to sail to Hawaii with him starting in Ensenada, Mexico. He was going to have work done there so Scott decided to get his work done there also! It saved us lots of $$ and to get there, Scott had his cousin, Todd take a week, Celeste sailed with Scott for a week and I did a week. It worked out pretty well. We took the month of May, Scott stayed with the boat for two months supervising the work and he flew back in August. Celeste and I got full time jobs with the School District so we kept busy also.

Since then, his friend had a change of plans so Scott started planning sailing in Mexico so Celeste, Scott and I flew down in November and after another month of work, we were ready to sail south. Ensenada was awesome so that will be my next entry.

About: On our first boat in 1977 Scott said, "One day I'd like to sail around the world." We did that from 1988 to 1996 on a J-36. Now we own our 4th boat, a Tripp 47 'Celestial' that we are retiring on.
