About Me

Singapore
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.

Summer is Over

Our first snow in Seward, at ground level, happened on Sunday and Monday.  It was all but gone on Tuesday except it has left a beautiful dusting on the mountains that surround Ressurection Bay.  It is hard to believe but Seward is even prettier with the mountains slightly covered like this.  When we came back in early May the mountains had significant snow still on them and though we marveled at how pretty it was, we think this light dusting where there is no permanent snow might be even prettier.

Even though Seward is pretty much closed down for the winter there are still lots of tourists coming in.  Seward is basically an ice free port so the harbour is full of boats.  Most of the locals believe it is better to keep the boat in the water for the winter than it is to put it on the hard where systems are sure to freeze up.  This makes a day like today with little wind kind of an inspiring place to walk around.  All the reflections in the water as we watch the ever hungry sea otters munching away and frolicking around the harbour amongst the quiet boats.  Not sure if it will still be this romantic in April after five months of it but for now it sure is pretty.
