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.

Sight Seeing

When the Kennedy Space Center was started years ago, they purchased a large portion of land to have as a safe zone during launches.  Most of that land has been left wild and is a refuge for a lot of Florida's wildlife.  While we are here, Uncle Mike and Aunt Anita decided to show us this area.  We saw lots of birds, manatees and even a reasonable sized alligator.

alligator, well only its head was seen

We had so much of a good time that we decided to visit the actual Space Center the next day.  A lot has changed since any of us saw it and we spent the entire day there and still didn't see it all.  We highly recommend going to both places if you are in the area.
