About Me

My photo
I am owned by Pauline and Mark Blasky. My hull was built at the Duncan Marine Yard in Taiwan and launched in Dec of 1980. It is a William Garden design based on the Pixie Design and called by Duncan Marine a Freedom 45. They are the fourth owners and have owned me the longest. They have done extensive refitting to me including replacing my entire deck structure and rig. My masts are roughly 10% taller than original and now are made of aluminium as opposed to the original wood ones, which, though pretty, were always problematic.

Google Earth has finally moved us!

Hey, for a long time after we left Raffles we could still look at Sari Timur in our old berth.  Today I noticed they had updated the picture, and we are not there.  So I looked for where we are and they have updated us there.  So we are not lost.  Check us out at 13 degrees 27 minutes 39.16 seconds N and 144 degrees 40 minutes 54.99 seconds E.  Big brother is watching us!

"Home" coming

Pauline has been away from Guam and Mark since July 20 and she is finally going home.  She was in Hong Kong and Singapore and will post more details when she gets back.  It was good being away from the stress of work and she has earned her much deserved rest.  It is hoped that she will feel more rejuvenated and ready to face the reality of work again.

Curiosity Lands on Mars

Hey, those of you may remember me posting pictures of the Mars Launch back in November 2011.  Well it is great to say it made it all the way to Mars and deployed successfully.  Man the landing operation just seemed posed with all kinds of difficult details but it went off ok and NASA now has a great research vehicle running around on Mars.
