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.

Heading to Fairbanks

We decided to take a long weekend near the solstice and head to Fairbanks.  Spent the first night in Talkeetna to catch up with Danny and Yvonne.  Weather is fantastic.  We left the pub last night at 02:00 and it looked like 18:00.  I think it got dark some time but I didn’t see it.  Off this morning for our furthest drive north so far.

Well we are back in Seward.  We attended the Summer Solstice Fair in downtown by the riverfront.  Went to North Pole, Alaska and saw Santa's House ate shopped and relaxed.  Had a great drive up there and back.  The weather was great up there but we did see the parking pedestals where you plug your car in during the winter to stop the block from freezing up so we know it gets cold there in the winter time.  We did find out that the International Ice Festival is on again next year, it was canceled this year.  So we are thinking pretty hard about attending it the first week of March.
