We are looking to find an individual, group of individuals or  a network production studio to create an Extreme Boat Makeover show.

Anxious to head South once again.. our wonderful and dearest friend Audax decided it was time to let go.
Perhaps a bit overzealous and forgetting to secure an able helmsman.
She chose a course and with it her fate.
Our fine lady always a women of style took her own life Sunday.
Breaking Free… she courageously crushed onto the granite ground of Fish House Cove, West Point. Maine.
But what a year!
So if you choose to shed a tear, just remember how she spread oh so much cheer.

Serving as home for 6 months, 2 twenty something’s and a 30 something had a mission: Sail a boat from Maine to the Caribbean and back.   Leaving far too late and under the falling snow they set out November 19th from Freeport, ME.  Journeying quickly down the east coast to Florida, crossing the gulf stream and steaming full force into the mighty trade winds  on a 1000 miles journey through the Bahamas, Turks/Caicos and Puerto Rico to make landfall….St. John in the USVI’s late February.

2 months , 30 plus visitors and this many margaritas later she set a course due North.  Blue water sailing via Bermuda she returned to Maine. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!!

A summer of day cruises galore…one late October day the winds wailed, the waves swelled and she broke free.

An insurance claim denied, the memories engrained the emotions welling.

Thank you all…for Everything
