Introducing Our New Sailing series!

Introducing our new sailing series: Three Sheets to the Wind!
My girlfriend, Julia, and I are fixing up and re-fitting an old Bayfield 25 (named “I’m Easy”) and sailing it through the Great Lakes, up the Saint Lawrence, and out into the Atlantic! The long-term plan is to sail it all the way down to the Bahamas! Check us out on Youtube!

My New Sailboat!

February 9, 2015

I present to you my very first sailboat named sailing vessel "I'm Easy". (Yes, I will be changing the name this year)

She is a 25 foot Bayfield, currently located in Parry Sound, Ontario. With a full keel and draft of only 2.9 feet, it is a cruiser that sails great downwind (and not so great upwind haha). It has an 8 HP Yanmar inboard diesel engine, headsail furling, and a full enclosure.

I'm Easy is a nice little lake sailor that just needs a little love to get sailing again. It is currently on-the-hard right now in Parry Sound waiting for the snow to melt so I can start working on repairing/refitting it.

Stay tuned to see the work I do this season to get I'm Easy ready for our adventures together!

Buying Your First Sailboat

February 9, 2015

Hello everyone! My apologies for the length of time since my last post. I have been busy working hard over the past year digging post holes and saving up for my first sailboat!

Check out my new series "Buying Your First Sailboat - A Guide to Inspecting an Old Used Boat" to see the process I took in finding and evaluating different boats for purchase.
