Imagine. Simply Living.

 

We want to try the improbable, a different life. Close to nature and at her whim. Sailing. Living life. Simply living.

 

We want to imagine what the future will be like and we want to help shape it. How will we live in 50 years? Will we have found ways to sustain our thirst for energy? Or will we choose to scale back? What will we reduce or drop, what will we keep?

 

We worked throughout our lives satisfying jobs, as if they were hobbies. We had enough to eat and live and often we compromised, but even then tried to find a moral silver lining to live by. When we felt too complacent or too comfortable, we changed things up. Our life has taught us, that we like challenges, the more difficult the better. Keeps us young and on our toes.

 

A couple of years ago, we decided to scale way back and live on a boat. Talking about shaking things up! Even for adventurous souls, this has been a challenge. It has allowed us to experience life and ourselves in a new way.

 

The Imagine is old school and a small boat by modern standards. She is narrow and fast, built in 1969 as a state of the art racer/cruiser, she still today holds her place amongst desired ocean faring boats. She fit our budget and is exactly what we were looking for. We didn’t want to replicate what we had on land; we were looking to change everything.

 

We hope this to be an inspiration.
