Episode 02 - Boat Shopping

May 29, 2017

This is the beginning of our sailing adventure with two people & two cats. Subscribe to our YouTube channel.

This episode follows our boat shopping journey as we try to find the right sailing vessel for our upcoming trip. Our parameters included:
1) Comfortable cruising
2) Under $100,000 CDN
3) Bluewater ready/almost ready (we won't have that much time to work on the boat)
4) Efficient lay out
5) BONUS: solar panels, radar, plumbed for the ocean, dinghy, close to Canada

Our plan is to sail from Lake Ontario to the Caribbean and then... beyond! We don't have a set plan so we'll be doing much of the preparation while we're underway.

Here is the crew:

Admeowral Diana - Canadian, has never sailed, but is good with logistics and handy work. Also has a much needed sense of humour.

Cat-tain Greg - Australian, sailed a lot down under but never in fresh water. Proficient in IT and kitty cuddling. Has an adventurous spirit.

Chief Petting Officer Jazz - A bulls eye tabby with a lot of spunk and fight in her. She is our hunter and keeps us in line.

SeaCat Hercules - An affectionate black kitty who loves unconditionally and is pretty chill about things - as long as his family is with him.

We started to plan our route back. Our first jump was from Hopetown to Green Turtle Cay. Green Turtle Cay is very quaint, with colourful houses and friendly people. We visited the main settlement, New Plymouth, and wandered into the memorial sculpture garden and the museum.
