Georgetown

A motorsail from Rudder Cut Cay to Georgetown was in order, so at high slack tide, we headed out the cut and into the Exuma Sound.  We entered Elizabeth Harbour and decided to anchor off of Monument Point.  We find a nice empty anchoring spot […]

Cambridge, Black Point and Rudder Cut Cays

Heading across the Exuma Sound, my fishing attempts yielded a few nibbles, but sadly, no sushi for dinner. First stop is Cambridge Cay inside the Land & Sea Park.  We pick up a mooring ball and enjoy the sunset from this beautiful location. Friend boat […]

Living in Tight Quarters

Living in Tight Quarters

Two of the most frequent questions we get is how much space do we live in- and how do we cope with living in such tight quarters? How small a space are we talking about?  Mahi is 43 feet long, with a beam of 14 […]

Beautiful Eleuthera

Beautiful Eleuthera

Next port of call is Spanish Wells in order to reprovision. The trip across from the Berry Islands to Northern Eleuthera was not fun for me. I somehow picked up a parasite or infection that laid me low for several weeks. I pull myself together […]

Outer Berry Islands

We spent time exploring Great Harbour Cay with our friend’s on SV Serenity.  Fun activities include visiting the cave, mangrove ride and lots of beachcombing. One night, Joe, Ethan and I were having dinner with our friend’s Jay and Karen Campbell boat, M/Y Largo.  We […]

Cristol on SV Delayed Gratification

We first met Jeff and Cristol Morgan on SV Delayed Gratification when we literally bumped into them during a nasty storm in the middle of the night during our second year of cruising.  What a way to meet new friends, we laughed about later!   After […]

Florida Keys to Bimini, Bahamas

Florida Keys to Bimini, Bahamas

Note: since it is hurricane season once again, I have time to catch up and write some posts. After patiently waiting almost a month in Marathon, FL, a brief weather window has finally opened up.  We plan to leave Marathon in the afternoon and sail […]

Florida Refit is Complete!

Florida Refit is Complete!

I am pleased to announce that we recently completed our second major boat refit for SV Mahi a few days before Christmas.   What did we do this time around?  More importantly, why? Here is a list of the jobs we completed. 1) Haul Out- […]

Trip To Florida

Trip To Florida

After waiting for a favorable weather window, Joe and I decided that motor sailing from Great Harbour Cay back to Florida without stopping was the way to go. We left the marina at 2 pm, and threaded the narrow entrance cut to head across the […]
