We are David & Lori. I run a technology company in North Texas and my wife Lori is retired. We are veterans of Lake and Caribbean Island cruising. We recently moved our Hunter 380 from a local Texas lake to the coast. This will give us the opportunity for more “local” coastal cruising.

One of the most interesting characters on our boat is Billy Ray. Yes, he is a puppet monkey – but he doesn’t know that. Comic relief and troublemaker: You have to keep an eye on him.

This site is for tracking our cruising progress and allowing us to share our experiences. Over the years we have learned from many cruisers both through their websites and also knowing some personally. It’s our turn to give back where we can.
