Hello – welcome to the voyages (to be) of the sailing vessel Ventured. I’ve dreamed about setting sail for the tropics for many years, and now I am actually in a position to accomplish this goal, and this blog will document chronicle my progress towards this goal, and in the fall, the actual voyage. Currently Ventured, a Tartan 37, is moored in Lake Union, near downtown Seattle, Washington. I live aboard with my girlfriend Jenn, and as of last night, our new kitten, Evil Minion.
The goal of this blog is to document the progress of preparing the boat for cruising, including thoughts, projects, costs and experiences. This information will hopefully prove useful to others making similar plans, as well as provide a forum for discussion and soliciting opinions from others with plans or experiences.
If you’ve stumbled across our little corner of the Internet, say Hello, and feel free to join in any discussions of interest.
