Boat Show — Day 2

April 17, 2011

What an exhausting, fulfilling, and significant weekend. We purchased all of our major safety systems this weekend, and deferred the water maker for another day. We got the kids to sit for at least 20 minutes of Zac Sunderland’s talk and Ruby even admitted that she wanted to hear more (but just couldn’t sit still). We saw 2 boats (a Lagoon 400, and a Morris 36) and completely lucked into getting  a free, two hour ride (with marine biology mini-class) sail on the 82′ steel schooner Seaward.

I’m going to wimp out again and let the photos do the talking.

    “Hello” to the crew of s/v Convivia!

    We found you yesterday searching for “families sailing to Mexico in 2011”. At first I came across the “wondertime” blog where I saw Victoria’s comment which lead us to this blog. We do not have a blog/ website just yet. Just tons of unsorted boat work pictures :o)

    We are also in the SF bay Area. We have our boat berthed in Redwood City. Our kids are 5 and 3 1/2 years old and we hope to have the boat and more importantly us 🙂 ready to leave with this years Baja haha.

    I would love to hear from you about …anything..actually :o) your schedule, plans, plans on schooling for the kids, gear, etc. You can contact us at sail.liberte at gmail

    Boat shows are exhilerating and exhausting! Maybe next year we’ll be able to see more and take more classes.
    btw, I love the picture of Ruby and Miles together. I hope V and O will be close someday.

      I think it’s safe to say that, living on a boat, V & O will be close. Our’s aren’t always nice to each other, but ever since Miles could play even the most basic game they’ve been plenty close 🙂
