End of an era

Horizon has sold. . . and before she was even listed for sale!  Cashiers check received and USCG document and Bill of Sale sent.  Her new owner and family is getting a great vessel and we wish them all the best.  This is the end of a 30-year era starting in 1987 when I bought the Rafiki 35, then took 5 years sailing her from San Francisco through Panama to Florida. We sold that boat in 2011 and swapped her for the Morgan which we then sailed around Florida and the northern part of the Caribbean until July 2016.  The life will be sorely missed.


  1. I'm sorry to hear you're out of the sailing business. Coming back to CAE? ;) - Larry

  2. I will miss reading your adventures. I stumbled on your blog when I purchased my 1978 Morgan Out Island 41. I've owned her 1.5 years and still haven't got her in the water yet. I got a good deal on her with no engine or generator. I hope to have her in the water in May or June. Reading your blog gave me many ideas and made me look forward even more to the day I can head to the Caribbean! Best of luck to you two.

  3. Mike, I emailed you back after you emailed me, maybe my email got stuck in your spam folder?
