Cruising my 1995 Catalina 42 MK II sailboat with my cat XO, the good, the bad, and the ugly of the open ocean world cruising life.

Emily and Amanda
Amanda and Emily
Emily contacted me via Find-A-Crew and we agreed that she and her friend Amanda would come up from Georgia and crew on Reboot. Unfortunately their arrival corresponded with several consecutive days of severe weather activity, mostly thunderstorms. We didn't get to sail. However both women were great fun. We visited the Maritime Museum in Newport News, VA, went swimming off Island "2" of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel (I discovered my SCUBA regulator needed service) and Emily convinced me to be shot 250 feet in the air on the "slingshot" at the amusement park in Virginia Beach. No sailing but we had fun!
