We finally made it! The Quepos anchorage, Oleada in the background.

Sailing to Your Wedding …and other ill-advised feats

You may have noticed the quiet state of this blog for the past few months.

All that running around in the boatyard is exhausting, can someone else take the helm for a bit?

Back in the water again

Well, not much has changed in the life of this sea dawg in the past week, but there has been a flurry of activity for the humans and I have a new boat on which I keep watch. Lady and Man have been spending endless time in the back of the boatyard, but this is […]

It may not look like, but I'm on watch.

I’m Ulysses, the sea dawg

  Hey everyone. My mom is busy trying to finish up everything on that big boat in the yard with all the good stuff to chew on, and she sits at the computer a lot too, talking about some place called Africa and their energy, so I’m going to take over for her for a […]
