welcome to our blog!

This blog tells the story of our 22-month sailing journey from Oakland, California, to Bristol, Rhode Island, aboard our beloved Bristol 32 sailboat, Ute. Please feel free to browse through the archives (partway down the sidebar to your left) to see pics and read stories of our adventures in North America and Central America . (Sorry the first 3 months of the trip are missing - they vanished somewhere in an internet cafe in Mexico - but all you're missing is CA, Baja and Western Mex).

If you're trying to track us down now that we're landlubbers, try us at uteatlarge at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

back at it

taking Friday off to monkey around was fun but it was back to the grindstone this weekend. it probably seems silly that we take pictures of zipper plackets on the tops of sailcovers, but when a zipper is nearly as long as our boat, and turns in to a 3-day/$400 repair job it becomes a notable zipper. Posted by Picasa
