S/V SUSANA Our goal for Cruising is 2013

This is Susana. A Bruce Roberts "Spray", steel-hull, gaff rigged Ketch.
In 1895, Joshua Slocum departed Boston in his tiny sloop Spray and sailed around the world single-handed. This historic achievement made him the patron saint of small-boat voyagers, navigators and adventurers all over the world

Susana is our Spray and will guide us where the wind meets the sea on our safe navigations. We are just a little behind our 5 year plan for retirement cruising. It looks like we'll be ready in 2014.....Follow us while we prepare Susana to take us on our Journey.

Cruise Plan Begins

Well, you have to start somewhere. After this year's (2010) boat show in Annapolis Kevin said " we gotta figure out how we're going to be able to cruise in 2 years...that's your job".

So, here it is...how we're getting to cruising.....

Well, to start with we just bought Susana. A Bruce Roberts Spray, 45 ft Ketch Rig, steel hull. She is just GREAT!! There's things we have to add, for sure, but she's a great sturdy, blue water boat...and Kevin is so handy with every thing.

He first started by re-wiring her, once he looked at the "rat's nest". He re-did the whole electrical system, the batteries, lectrosan in head, eveything. Anybody want to hire him?
