The Perfect Boat Person Is…

…An organized workaholic. That makes us a good team–I’m organized and Allen is a workaholic. Or rather, Allen’s a project-aholic, as perfectly illustrated by our salon table.

Night Watch Is Like Childbirth

My head hurts as I try to process the steps I must take to avert a potential collision. Stay strong, stay awake, the baby, er, the morning is almost here. I’m never having another baby EVER.

The Land Of Ma’am

Our first glimpse of land are antebellum mansions, each with their own dock. The scorching weather, however, keeps any sign of humanity indoors so our arrival on this July 4th is quiet.

Sea Artist

In an instant, the clutter of civilization is behind us and we are surrounded by a canvas of blue as far as the eye can see. The endless view of water and sky is both boring and awesome.

Where We Are

Where We’ve Been

Our adventure began in 2016 when we discovered Gémeaux in St. Martin. We explored the Caribbean, Colombia, San Blas, and The Bahamas, as well as the eastern seaboard of the U.S. In 2022, we crossed the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and sailed as far east as Croatia and Greece in 2023.

Where We’re Headed

We returned to our winter marina in Sicily in April 2024 and are now westbound hugging the Mediterranean coastlines of Italy, France, and Spain. We expect to cross the Atlantic Ocean to the Caribbean in November and enjoy one final winter in the Virgin Islands and The Bahamas. After 8 years of this amazing adventure, we plan to sell Gémeaux and become landlubbers in California.
