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.

Back in Seward

Well we made it back to Seward.  The car passed its road check tests fine and Nissan reset the alarms we got mid trip and changed the oil etc.  We had dinner last night with Father Bill at Chinooks.  Mark started working at his new job today.  Pauline finished unpacking the car and stowing as much as she could.  She has to go back to work tomorrow.  So does Mark as the Tug Chahunta has some last minute jobs that need doing before the weather turns and Mark has courses Monday through Friday for the next two weeks.  But he is happy to be employed again and accumulating time on a big boat which will help him upgrade his license.


  1. Grear to follow the road trip. Enjoy the winter. We shall be following the blog to get some hints in what to expect when over wintering. Jim and Tori

  2. Hi guys, the snow is just dusting the higher peaks right now but we are supposed to get actual snow next week. We still are not sure how to primarily heat the boat. We bought a propane heater which works well but sets off the CO alarms after about 4 hours. The electric ones we have are a bit small for the deep winter. The wood stove burns too quick. We will let you know.
