Sailed down to the Exumas after hurricane Sandy. It was a quick 5 1/2 days out of Annapolis, motoring the first 44 hours then 20 knots of breeze for the balance! Looking forward to exploring the cays this winter

Tioga commissioning

21 January 2012 | Ft Lauderdale
Tioga arrived in Ft Lauderdale and is getting commissioned. Things are going great. The electronics, sails, mast stepping, etc.. all happening. It's been 18 months in the making and we are chomping at the bit to get sailing. She will be in the Miami show and then off to Maine in May.

Just received progress photo's of Tioga! Yes, we have come up with the name Tioga, and will stop referring to her as "the boat". In 1982 shortly after we were married we went on an adventure in the mountains of California. We got a flat tire on the top of Tioga Pass and spent the night in the car. The stars were beautiful, the weather was cool and crisp, and the view the next morning was spectacular! It was a great adventure.

choices

12 June 2011
It's been 6 months since we ordered a new Hylas 56 and every day we have another choice to make; how do we want the interior laid out, what do we want for refrigeration, what about batteries, generator, lights, electronics, etc, etc... Exciting, but endless, and I don't want to get items that I won't need and I also don't want to say "gee I can't believe I forgot that". Oh well, around we go. Can't wait to get the boat!!
