Since 1978 I have been fortunate to sail wooden boats. In 2006 I set out to find a Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for single-handed expedition sailing. This is the continuing story of how it came to be, our adventures, notes on the maritime world and other things I don't want to forget...

We went out to Mathews County today for a birthday celebration for a number of friends. Warm sun, cool temp, and plenty of food. I was happy to see the oysters steaming in their own juice atop an old 55 gallon drum. Fresh out of Pepper Creek about a hundred yards away.
