Old boat lives on

In an idle moment I thought I’d Google the name of the sailboat that I sold 12 years ago after sailing from Vancouver to Auckland. And I got a pleasant surprise. Out of the perhaps dozens of boats named Oceana, one of the first search results was obviously our faithful old boat.

It’s wonderful to see that she is not only still afloat (in the Caribbean) but that her current owners, Andy and Christina, are bloggers.

Sailing and blogging. It’s such a change from the late 1980s when we had no GPS, no refrigeration or watermaker, and not even a radio transmitter! We thought reaching port, and sending a fax from a Pacific Island post office to family at home was high tech. 🙂
