About Us

The Reluctant Boater

I wonder sometimes what my life would have looked like, had I not met and married my husband, Chuck – my wonderful, courageous, adventurous, funny, loving husband. I was content to be an observer to life, content to sit in my chair and observe. God really works in mysterious ways, to pair me with my soulmate who is completely opposite from me. Let’s take this whole boating thing…. I love the water, the sea, everything about it. I was NOT, however, in love with boats. Noisy, expensive and scary. What I didn’t know scared me. Chuck, however, grew up with boats and it was in his blood.
