A new blog, an exciting adventure...

Even though this blog isn't live yet, and the deal isn't done...I wanted to start putting down some of the story, because it is very exciting...and I just HAVE to tell someone.

We are going to buy a boat, a catamaran...well, that is the plan at any rate. She is a Lagoon 42 TPI - Jeanneau to be precise, and her name is Lucey Blue. She is currently sailing the crystal clear waters of Fiji, but will be in Australia by the end of the year.

Musket Cove, Malololailai, Fiji

Lucey Blue was built in 1992 by Tillotson-Pearson Inc. (T.P.I.) - of Warren, Rhode Island, USA subcontracting for Jeanneau-Lagoon Catamarans of France.

She has two queen berths aft, two double berths forward, two heads/showers, a galley in the port hull, a spacious saloon, a covered cockpit with large folding table and two big trampolines at the bow.

We have just spent a week in Fiji ourselves, including three fun days meeting Lucey Blue and her family of owners (Buc, Ina, Simon and Amanda) at the Musket Cove Resort on idyllic Malololailai.

Lucey Blue is a lovely, comfortable boat and I can hardly wait for the deal to be done. Bring on December!!
