is creating Our Dream - Building a Steel Sailboat




per month


We are Garry and Cathy, a late middleage couple who are on a continuing journey of self discovery, hard work, determination and adventure. Cathy and I started to build our roberts 370E steel sailboat six years ago, in the hope that we would be finished and living the dream today. However life in general and both of us working full time means the boat project has often had to take a back seat. That's fine with us as we know living a good life and bringing our wonderful children into the world, was in itself an amazing acievement! However the kids are now independant young adults on thier own life journeys, so it's now time for us to spread our wings, (well set our sails really) on the next great life experience.

It is our hope that we can finish our boat within the next two to three years and be living aboard, hoopefully until we can't do it any longer :-) Please do join us on this adventure and help us go from determined amateur boat builders, to grey-noamads of the sea!
