MV Sealoons is for sale! - is now sold!

Sealoons is now Sold! On a mooring ball in Stuart, FL in 2019. Update: Sealoons is now sold! We have  decided to sell Sealoons, our  77 Seafarer Coronet. It was not an easy decision but we are confident it is the right one at this time. She has been amazing and is ready for new owners to love and take her on their adventures and exploring. We completed America’s Great Loop in 2019  (and to our knowledge, that is the only time she was exposed to salt water).  It was truly an amazing experience, the places we saw and the people we met were incredible.  You can read all about it here, on our blog about our trip: Boat Specs: •  Make & Model:  Coronet, 31 SeaFarer •  Year Build: 1977 •  Hull Length Overall: 31' 8" (plus swim platform, dinghy davits and anchor and bow pulpit)  •  Beam: 10’ 4” •  Draught: 3' •  Air Draft: 11' 6" •  Weigh: 10000 pounds •  Engines: (x2) Twin Volvo Pent 4.3 GXi-DF 225hp, V6  with indirect cooling system (Close sy

A Recap of our 2018-2019 Loop Adventure (with links)

It's been a long time since I've updated our blog. We haven't had much to share, the pandemic the last couple years has changed a lot of plans (not just for us).  We've been keeping busy rediscovering the trails and rivers around home.  Staying active keeps us happy! (Fundy Park, NB) I've been wanting to compile a list of all the blog posts, with links, from our Loop for some time now. (Just for ease of looking them up and sharing with friends and family.)   The planning stage: (January 2018 to June 2018) First Post!

We've signed up to be "Harbor Host" in Atlantic Canada

Here's a brief "recap" on where we are now. We are Gold Loppers! It took us just over a year to complete our Loop - from 11 July 2018 to 27 July 2019 in our Coronet Seafarer. It was truly one of the best experience and adventure we've had so far in our life. The places we've seen and visited, the people we've met and become friends with have enriched our life as we could not have imagined before. Now that we have settled back into a dirt home, we've decided to become "Harbor Host". I don't know how many fellow AGLCA members are planning on doing the "Down East Cruisers' Loop" in the future, but just so you all know, we are located in Dieppe, New Brunswick , a short drive away from the Northumberland Strait . If we can help in any way, please reach out to us, we'll be happy to assist if possible or try to find someone who can! Resources in development: Here is a quick glance/peek at the information/website lin

Our thoughts now that we're Gold Loopers and are back home

Well, we're back home,  and we are now suffering from "Boat Withdrawal". It's a temporary thing - we know that 😉 so, we are getting over it and adapting to our new "normal".  Getting back into our "dirt home" routine has been a bit of an eye opener for us. We're missing our "outdoor" time much more than anticipated - on the boat, we were outside or in the cockpit about 80% of the time. We're also realizing that we can slow down our pace now... we don't need to research-plan-prepare for tomorrow (have a plan A,B,C in case the weather or something else changed our travel conditions). It's taken us about two weeks to "mellow" down some. The urge to go somewhere - do something had both of us a bit on edge, sitting down and listening to the news, relaxing and just chilling was... well, kind of weird - the urgency to get something or everything done "now" is missing. SeaLoons - nice and secure!

Rideau Ferry, ON - crossing our wake!

Sea Loons "America's Great Loop" (11 July 2018 - 27 July 2019) It's hard to put into words what is going through our head right now. Doing the "Great Loop" was a dream of ours for years! Now... it's a "done deal", we've actually finished what we set out to do and crossed our wake! We know we are very fortunate to have done this at our age (mid to late forties)! We planned and discussed the "Loop" for years. We worked and sacrificed so that when the time was right, we would be ready. We sold our house, found our "loop boat", bought our condo, sold our previous boat and had awesome employers that supported us and let us go (with the knowledge we have jobs to go back to). I am simplifying it, but those were all very big steps for us. During our Loop, we met and became friends with so many great people! We saw amazing places and areas, both in Canada and in the U.S. - we really enjoyed learning about the
