You are now traveling with Doug, Debra and cats Miel and Banger aboard our 41 foot ketch, Suka. Hope you don’t get seasick!

Doug and I left California in March of 2003. Doug had slaved for a homebuilder and I for the County of Orange for the previous 14 years. That toil bought us a beautiful Laguna Niguel condo nestled on a hillside and overlooking a large part of Orange County. In 1999 we cashed in the condo and bought our 41 foot CT-41 ketch rigged sailboat. The following 3 1/2  years were spent at Shoreline Marina in Long Beach aboard our new home, Suka. Still working full time our weekends were now jammed full of getting the old girl up to snuff for world cruising as well as getting us educated enough to pretend like we knew what we were doing. When March ’03 finally rolled around we left California’s shores, pointed Suka’s nose south and headed for golden Mexico.
