S/V  SEAS THE DAY

 

This site chronicles our adventures aboard S/V Seas the Day beginning with a long list of “tasks” which led us to the final goal of owning a boat.  Early on the list was a trip to the 2007 boat shows.  We arrived at the Ft. Lauderdale Boat Show with the plan of looking at several different power cats.  As we considered the cost of fuel, we gravitated toward the sailboat docks.   We loved the comfort, size, and fuel efficiency of the Lagoon 420.  After a sea trial, we were sold!  Hull 71 sailed, with a delivery crew, from France to Ft. Lauderdale and we accepted delivery in early August, 2008.  On August 21 we moved aboard our Lagoon 420 and on September 1  we christened her Seas the Day.


See photos of christening ceremony.

NEW BLOG LOCATION


We decided to change the location of our website after our 2013 visit to The Bahamas.  Uploading entries from our Mac became very expensive and difficult using wifi through Batelco and other providers.  It is easier to get online there on an iPad, but the software for this website only works on a Mac computer.  Therefore we switched to using Word Press for a new website starting in September, 2013.   You can find it at http://svseastheday.com. This site will continue to be located here to keep a record of our travels from 2008 through 2013. 


We are using the SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger to track our progress.  The link for our current location is http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0HCY2dMojD74kC4xO5MKqMb2HphyqCROz
