Our dream…to retire when James turns 55, myself 50 and sail away into the great blue yonder. Yup, we all have dreams and some of us out there share this same dream. We have ten years to turn this dream into reality.
James has owned boats in the past, a powerboat first and then a Beneteau 323. After the sale of both he became a beachcomber, a sailor without a ship. I have had no real experience, the occasional fishing trip and ferry ride, lol. Shortly into our relationship, I understood how important his passion was and I was excited to give something new a try. About a year into our relationship (November 2016) we came across a CS 22 for sale at an auction, we decided on the highest price point and WE WON! The first time we seen her, she was so sad looking, but we fixed up the trailer and pulled her home. We spent the next several months during the weekends working on her. We must have cleaned out about 50 clay wasp nests, hence the name Yellow Jacket. Fast forward to summer 2017 and we have a beautiful boat ready for the water, we added items, took out items and designed a crutch for the mast. We now have a week vacation and decide to take her to the Thousand Islands.
