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!

thanks guys...you wouldn't BELIEVE what UV exposure does to jerry jugs....well probably you would....they are completely burned underneath the covers, like they were in a fire or something.

I tried to make nice fitted ones, but quickly discovered that fitted ones take about 2 hours each, while draw-top ones take about 20 minutes each. so. there you go.
