BACK to BOAT LIFE! The Florida Loop on a 28′ Trimaran Sailboat!


We are FINALLY back to full time boat life! We loaded up the trimaran and set out on our first leg of the Florida loop. We planned to just get to the first lock out of 5 but we were able to make it all the way to Mayaca in our first day.

Don’t forget to check out our new UPF shirts 🤗
