Guest Interview Gale and Mary Plummer Worknot N57

So, Gale, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far?. We moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2002.  Home prices were thru the roof and climbing.  At the time we had moved from ARIZONA and traded our 80 MPH go fast for a Grand Banks 42.  It was kept at Ventura Ca and we cruised the Channel Islands, Catalina and Ensenada.  After viewing homes in the Bay Area decided to move the GB to Alameda in the SF Bay.  Plan was we would stay there for 2 weeks an...

So, Dennis, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far?

So, Tony, tell us a little something about your cruising to date and where you have been so far?

Guest Interview Knot Wafflen - David and Sue Ellen Jenkins Aspen C-120 40ft Catamaran.

So David, tell me a little about this 10,000nm journey? Well, I wanted to do a lot of boating and become an expert boater, one way to do that is to do a ton of sea miles.  Having  Aspen help sponsor the trip has allowed me to fulfil this dream and helped make it all possible. When you purchased your Aspen 40, what were the key features you were looking for? I was looking for distance and speed. I am not a slow boater, that said however, I do love sailboats but basically I like to get to where...

We started out with a 23’ Tiderunner full displacement cabin cruiser with a sm...
