We are two people who came together later in our lives. We both had our own businesses and both had a passion of fishing, water and boats. We also both loved the outdoors like camping and fishing till dawn on Skip’s 1969 Glastron that belonged to his dad. When Skip took ownership of his dad’s boat in 2006 he fully restored it. Isn’t she a beauty?
I met Skip late in 2008. He had a contracting business in Virginia and I had a residential commercial cleaning company in Ohio. We both had much in common. He pursued me to no end and proposed to me on a beautiful sunset in June of course we were on a boat. I believe it was on 1985 17’ Mako. That’s right I remember the boat but not the exact date. I know it was June of 2009. We married June 14, 2010 that’s the day my dad was married and my grandparents.
We fished like crazy until 2014 then we both started working like crazy on out networking business.
We knew if we really worked hard for a few years our residual would be enough to sustain us well on a sailboat.
That brings me here today to this post and a book in progress. We purchased our first sailboat it’s a 1974 Cal 24’ T4 and she is a beauty in the making. Come on over and see our blog.... https://2saltydawgs.com/2016/05/05/the-beginning-of-2-salty-dawgs/
She sails just fine. We had her out a few weeks back and we decided to restore her. After restoration we will be selling her and then getting a 30’ to sail to Florida for the winter. We both agree the Virginia winters are too cold and harsh for us.
