Re: How do you use your boat

We have a Pearson 530, a center cockpit ketch.
Purchased as a "last boat" for voyaging, she has made two trips from Newport to the Caribbean and one north in the last 2.2 years as well as 3 trips through the Windwards and Leewards and we're on our 4th now, heading north.
This is our home, we have no other and we have even given up the storage locker ashore. Our only tie to the shore is a PO Box.
With no plan or itinerary, other than to pick up a few items and mail in St.Thomas once a year, we find ourselves enjoying the sailing with little regard for the destination. Sometimes it's a busy, popular place like Bequia, others, it's lonely anchorages on the windward side of Martinique.
At times we spend several days aboard at anchor without going ashore, doing little jobs, snorkeling; just enjoying each others company and watching for that perfect green flash at sunset.
