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 saw our first Moose, Meese, Meeses?

Every since we drove to Anchorage to pick up Laura and Steve and saw all of the 'beware of moose' signs, we have been keeping an eye open for moose.  Well this morning we got lucky.  And it wasn't out in the wilderness.  We were in a taxi on our way into town when out popped a mother and her two calves.  She was a lot bigger than we expected.  And they crossed the road within a 100 meters of Homer's only traffic light so not that rural.  Anyway it is Alaska so even in the middle of town there are trees and bush area and the local lake is fairly close by.  Sorry no pics as it happened fairly quick and we were on the meter as well as late so we will have to wait until next time.  But one more of things to see in Alaska has been ticked off.

Oh by the way the plural of moose is moose, not meese, meeses, nor mooses but we thought that we might have some fun and let you know there was more than one.


  1. Hi you happy sailors, it is great that you are having a really great scenic and interesting journey away. I do hope you may write a book about this exciting journey. I put my hand up for a copy!
    Take care,
