Necesse is a 41ft Morgan that they bought, in dire need of love. With the help of friends, they sailed her back to Miami and began a total makeover of the ship. This endeavor took them 11 months living in Coconut Grove, Miami. Many hours were spent getting this boat back on her “feet” and sailable again. And at some points, the jobs seemed insurmountable, but with the help of multiple friends, and Eben’s constant work, she was ready to set sail towards the Bahamas once again.
From that point on their lives were a whirlwind of new experiences. They sailed Necesse for several years to follow, all they down to the Virgin Islands. In those years they welcomed a second daughter, sailed the waters of Bahamas, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. They dodged a few hurricanes and took a few short “land break” in the DR and Tanzania. Travelling is a way of life for this family, and sailing has been an affordable way to do so (taking their home where ever they go).
After 7 years afloat, they decided to sell it all, again. This time they sold the boat to go looking for new “land” adventures. The fun never ends! They bushwacked and started the pet project of building a house in the Rocky Mountains of BC, Canada. But when the cold came it was time to put that plan on a back burner and go! They have now been living in Todos Santos, Baja California Sur, Mexico for the last 3 years!!! Where did the time go? The plan was to build a boutique hotel, but things don’t always go to plan. Instead, they bought their own property and are trying to decide what to do next. The adventures never end!
