The New Shallow Sailing

For years I have hosted the site Seapearlboats.org which highlighted my travels and work on Belle, my SeaPearl 28 trailer-able sailing cat-ketch.

Getting Shallow Minded ready for the fall trip

Last year I had a chance to buy a Phillip Bolger AS-29 sharpie live aboard cruiser.  It was located on the hard in Hampstead, North Carolina, a long way from my home in Stone Mountain, Georgia.  I made several trips to North Carolina to work on her in the yard.  The people were very nice and accommodating to my needs. However, the distance was killing me both traveling and trying to carry enough tools and live while there.

So after contemplating my options I decided to have a trailer built by Sail Trailers, located in Columbus, Georgia.  Sail Trailers

The focus for this blog will be the care for and adventures of Shallow Minded.  I will include items that are sailing related at times.  Since I don’t have time to keep up with more than one blog I will at times discuss my work on boats and adventures and work on my other boats which at this time includes SM’s tender, Swift IMG_0580

as well as my SeaPearl 21, Ipearl.IMG_1168

You can read more about Sea Pearl sailboats at my other blog: SeaPearl boats

I will assume the reader is interested in small boat adventures and boat upkeep tips, tricks and upgrades.

Having thus introduced this blog, I would like to refer the reader to my other current blog on Shallow Minded.  Eventually this site will be merged and reside under one domain.  For now, I don’t have time to go back and capture the story of Shallow Minded from the beginning.  Here is my companion site: Please click here for my other blog.

This fall, I will, (if all goes according to plan) be taking an extended trip down the Gulf Coast of Florida starting in Carrabelle and ending up as far south as the Keys.  The blog will no doubt be most interesting when adventure is afoot.  Stay tuned for the final preparations.  This should be fun!

If you can, go out in a boat, any boat and have a great summer.  Thanks for letting me share.
