Introducing S/V Stella Blue

We now have an address in New Bern, NC - at a marina.  Our house literally moves with the wind.  It all seems surreal and pretty great.  There are so many adventures in life that Baxter and I want to experience and this boat opens the door to a new world.

Not to say it doesn't require a bit of work.  In the last week, after working all day, Baxter has replaced the head with a new Raritan, rewired the windlass (the anchor reeling system), replaced the fresh water pump, replaced the pump for the reverse cycle heat-A/C, and we have set up our living space into 2 hanging lockers, 4 drawers and 3 galley sliding cabinets.  Of course, we do have the lazarettes (lockers in the cockpit) but that's just for cleaning supplies, fenders, and boat hooks and of course the emergency manual bilge pump.  And this boat was in the best situation of any we found.

She sails so well and we look forward to taking her places she's always wanted to go.  We always have room for friends and family to join us on the adventure.
