1980 Endeavour 32

Note: "Strider" has been sold to a friend who will keep her on the Saint Johns River in New Brunswick and will let us use her when we have the yen for cruising under sail again. We have purchase a Kaday-Krogen Manatee, a 36 foot trawler type powerboat, for cruising the inland waters of the Great Loop and the Canadian canals. Social media has overtaken this kind of web site and I'm tired of html coding so we will be reporting our future adventures via Facebook and various trawler forums. I'll probably retire this web site and domain before too long but, if you have found it, enjoy.

"If a man must be obsessed by something, I suppose a boat is as good as anything, perhaps a bit better than most. A small sailing craft is not only beautiful, it is seductive and full of strange promise and the hint of trouble. If it happens to be an auxiliary cruising boat, it is without question the most compact and ingenious arrangement for living ever devised by the restless mind of man--a home that is stable without being stationary, shaped less like a box than like a fish or a girl, and in which the homeowner can remove his daily affairs as far from shore as he has the nerve to take them, close hauled or running free--parlor, bedroom, and bath, suspended and alive."
