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.

Winter Wonderland

It has been a while since we updated our blog.  Well, that is what happens when you are working and not playing.

Mark finished and passed all his courses!

We had a quiet Thanksgiving this year with a baked ham and we surely missed the fun we had last year in Florida.

It is getting colder here in Seward, with occasional strong winds, bringing the wind chill to the minus temperatures, both in the Fahrenheit and Celsius scale.  The snow fall makes the place so pretty and the photos do not do it any justice.  The water in the boat harbor nearer shore is freezing.  The boat seems to be taking it in her stride and we are coping.  We have our wood stove going in the evening and 2 electric heaters going all the time, so we are keeping warm.

It was pretty cold, the surface water is slushy

Pauline built a mini snowman.  He didn't last very long, fell over with the falling snow during the night
