Paul = water sports guy, surf most every day before I work as a carpenter on Oahu. Born in So Cal. High school in Edmonds Wa. One of my best friends lives on Fisherman's Bay, Lopez Island. We had our boat anchored in front of his place last (2011) summer as I worked as a carpenter on friendly lopez Isle. Jan worked at the glass blower shop.
7/1/12 Update- I sailed the boat down the coast to San Fran bay arrived last October, BRRrr. Boat went to Napa River and hauled out, I went home to Honolulu to save pennies for the next leg of the journey. We have just flown in from Hawaii and are enjoying cruising our boat up in the WARM river delta area. We went way up. Good fun. Now headed by vw camper to Truckee.
Cont, Sailed on south to mexico and did a refit on the schooner, then sailed her single handed to Maui, FUN, 28 days at sea, 3 Mahi Mahi.
Now back to work on Oahu , and starting to plan our Tahiti surf / sail for summer of 2015
Jan = Born on Maui, a total surfer-girl. Loves Lopez Island and our adventures in the San Juan Isle, and San Fran River delta, we went way up in our sailboat! Jan has lived her entire life in Hawaii, with half year in Europe and two years in west Australia.
Update - Our 50 ft schooner "pink cloud" is now just south of Ventura Ca, I sailed down from San Fran last Halloween. June 2013 we will return to the boat and sail the Channel Isles a bit and work our way south to Ensenada Mex for a haul out and some modifications and improvements to our galley cockpit area ( amazing craftsmen and fair rates) . From there its likely Hawaii, Then Tahiti... Or Panama is also calling.
Hawaii won, sailed back to Hawaii Sept 2014
The adventure continues
Aloha- Paul & Jan
