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.

We didn't stop in Porcupine Bay but managed to make it all the way to Seward.  We did see our first ice bergs on this trip.  Not up close as we were in a hurry.  But fairly impressive just the same.  Also they are not far from the marina so next spring maybe we will take a closer look.

These two photos were taken on the same day, maybe a couple of hours apart but look at the sky.

this glacier flows down to the bay
zoom in and you can see the bergs.  they are pretty big through the binoculars

Anyway Seward is our final destination for the year.  We are still not sure if we are going to put the boat on the hard or in the water.  Will know more about that in the next few days, after we get a better lay of the land.  We also do not know yet what our short term future holds but we will be here at least until the middle of October.  We have heard from Mark's cousin, who has to go to work in Anchorage in early October and has suggested we all meet up for a beer.


  1. You guys deserve a break to get your land legs back in operation! I am sure you will find plenty of things to do in what seems to be an amazing part of the world. Enjoy and take care. Roley.
