The Crew

Dean's last day of work is July 5th, 2011.  He grew up in Montana, but now enjoys the water.  Dean learned to sail in Washington racing on sailboats in the Puget sound.


Kris grew up in Oregon, and sailed small lakes with her parents on a Catalina 22.  After college she taught sailing part time, raced on several different boats from 22' to 45' and became a certified ASA instructor. 


Kris and Dean quit work and sailed on their Cascade 36 from Seattle, WA to Mexico, and up into the Sea of Cortez from 1993 to 1995.


Derek grew up in Idaho and Connecticut.  He sailed on his Grandpa’s trimaran, his parents 18’ sloop and on friends J35 before making the move to living aboard. 


Sam is Derek’s dog, a mixed breed maybe Golden Retriever and Border Collie, who is happy just being where we are.  As you can see he now supports much shorter hair, it helps keep him cool and it is easier for us to keep him clean.


Oso is a old old Alaskan Malamute, who just wants to lay in the shade and eat.  Oso had a great time on the boat but in Oct 2012 he stopped traveling with us.
