The Adventure Begins

Our Intro: Two souls in search of an island paradise - found in the union of two hearts.

Our Vessel: S/V Take Me There! is our 1975 Gulfstar M53 Motor-Sailor Ketch. The boat is his dream and her portal to a mutual desire to travel, experience and re-capture all that we missed in our lives as busy professionals and parents. S/V Take Me There! is a place where we can be us and at one with the water - a strong part of our vision of retirement.

Our Story: She is the CEO of a small, successful company and has never spent significant time on a boat. He is a US Army Officer finishing a rewarding 30 year career where sailing was always in the dream but never in the picture. Both dreamed of a beach house retirement plan and time with each other. We just couldn't find the beach property that "wowed" us. She surprised him for his 50th with ASA certification lessons and a bareboat charter - he was clueless that just months before, she had decided that a house on the water required imagination, innovation and a leap of faith over unfamiliar ground (or water in this case). The search began - the result was Take Me There! We both knew she was the one!

Our Adventure: It all started on a cold Florida day in December of 2012...remaining entries will capture the legs of our adventure that continue to this day...
