Boat #4: 1985 Gulf Star 44

Come aboard as I get a full on-the-water tour of this impressive 1985 Gulf Star 45 Hirsch model, only 1 of 30 built, a moderate-sized, comfortable coastal cruiser suitable for a family of four.  Thank Brandon with Perdido Sailor, Inc. for the tour!

Finding these boat tours helpful?  Awesome.  Help me film more!  And, let me know certain boats you would like to see.  I’ve got a Beneteau, an Island Packet and, a real treat, my first motor vessel, this Mama Jama, which I’m going to call an almost-mega yacht.



All coming live to you soon!  If you’ve enjoying the tours, please support the cause!



#59: A Boatyard Break to Sail the Chute

(And a “worm dance” to boot … do NOT miss that!)  We were headed to the shipyard to work on a Sunday but Brandon said it was too pretty not to sail.  Watch as we take a well-deserved break from the yard and hop aboard Brandon’s Gulf Star 45 to fly the chute!

Exciting news kids.  Weather depending (always the case, right?) Phillip and I will be headed out today for our first weekend on the hook since … last year?!  This boat is ready to go!

And, I’ll keep working hard over here to bring you along every step of the way through videos, photos and blogs.  If you’ve been inspired by the journey, get on board!
