    Owner bio:
    We have been sailing for 25+ years. Started with trailerable boats like a Lockley Sea Witch then a Vagabond 17. Bought a Catalina 27 in 1997, rebuilt an Irwin 31 in 2001-2002, bought and repaired Paloma an Oday 30 in FL in Dec 2006, & bought Day Dream an Oday 34 in Florida in April of 2007 and shipped her to the Chesapeake to repair in May. Have been sucessful in selling previous boats to allow us to sail larger vessels. Eileen is an artist who specializes in watercolor painting (she also helps with all projects and sews the interior cushion sets) and I write poetry that is a chronicle of our sailing experiences. Note: We sold Day Dream Oct/2010. We sold Paloma in Jan/2011. Presently: Boatless, but looking for an appropriate daysailer.......
    12/July/2011: Nearly finished with work on an Oday Mariner and her trailer. Expect to sail her soon in PA and MD and other areas.
    July/Aug 2011: sailed the Mariner several times. We were not comfortable in the cockpit. Gave her back to the friend who let us use her.
    19/Aug/2011: Bought "Linde" 1979 Celebrity Class sailboat #860. Starting cleaning and repairs today!
    Feb/2012: Bought "Uno" 1985 Precision 18 hull #001. Needed repair/rebuild as expected. Sold Uno in March 2013. We bought an Oday 272 in Jan 2013 and worked on the usual projects. "Breezin' Up" is a lively daysailer for Charlotte Harbor and the surrounding area. "Mara", a Caliber 28, was purchased in August 2013 for use on the upper Chesapeake Bay. Working on her systems now. Oct 2013: sold 1979 Celebrity Class "Linde" (couldn't let her wait in the barn while we were on the Chesapeake Bay). Jan 2016: Sold "Breezin Up" in FL. to a couple who were excited about owning their first sailboat. June 2016: Trucked MARA to Seneca Lake State Park and settled her into a slip at the park marina. Beautiful, clear water! Oct/2017 bought "Wicked Wahini" - 1983 Celebrity as a project boat
