About Me

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.

Fox Bay

15 August 2015

We set the alarm this morning for an early start but the wind was blowing and it was raining, so we got back under the covers for another couple of hours sleep.  We finally got moving about 1030 and were planning to go all the way to Geographic Harbor but decided to put into Fox Bay for the night instead.  Reason being that we didn't want to do 2 overnight as the weather was still bad.  

As we were coming into the bay, a fishing vessel captain hailed us on the radio to tell us about some set nets in the bay.  Then he offered to give us some sockeye salmon caught within the hour.  Unfortunately we could only accept one fish as we don't have a freezer.  It was yummy!!

We hope that tomorrow will be more settled weather and we can make an overnight to Port Wrangell.  The weather is still south but the decreased winds should drop the waves.  But it is the rain that we hope will stop.  The bays between here and Port Wrangell are numerous but either exposed to the south, very steep to, or too far off the track to dip into so we are pretty resolved to make the run to Port Wrangell.  From there it will be only a day sail to Geographic Harbor.

    1. Hi, for some reason my comment appears twice and I am not sure why, so I do apologise for this.
