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.

Tonsina Bay

Well we finally got away from Port Chatham.  The seas were still a little lumpy as we left but we knew we would soon be putting them on our stern so we were not too worried.  We did however take a few rolls for a while as we had to take the seas on the beam until we entered Chugach Passage and one of those broke over the side and threw some water below as we hadn't put in the hatch boards.  We also had one of our CO/smoke alarms sitting on the table and that went flying across the boat and broke the display.  Oh well we have another one without a display so we would not asphyxiate ourselves.  After we made the turn we had a great motor sail over here.  Its a small little bay fairly deep but it seems well protected from all angles.  We do not plan on staying. Of course we didn't in Port Chatham either and we were there for five nights.  But the forecast looks good for the next few days so we want to make tracks towards Seward.  It has warmed up and the sun is out.  Our temp this morning was 0.5 degrees C and now it is a balmy 11.  Maybe we will put the bathers on and go for a swim later!!!
