Meet The Team

IMG_2225_edited.jpg

Kris

Retired military pilot learning to run a boat, stay off the rocks, fix everything that breaks, and get from one place to another with high morale and enthusiasm for the adventure among the crew. Coming along on emotional intelligence and patience when things don't go according to plan.

Jolene

Keeps the team together. Nutritionist, doctor, math teacher, and watch stander in early evening and early morning.  Burgeoning radar theorist and capable of navigating traffic separation schemes while dodging squalls at 3 a.m. Object of adoration to her throngs of fans. Inspirational muse to crew and non-crew alike. Occasionally seamstress and friendship matchmaker at every stop.

Davis

A high school boy conversant in wiring and diesel basics. Stands watch late night, occasionally reprimanded for racing shrimp boats offshore on dark nights in 6-9' seas downwind off of radar alone. Working through dad's grading on English lit papers while finding time to take great drone footage of interesting places.

Garrett

Pullups off of the davits in the early morning hours? Jumping jacks on the foredeck? Google history for "Parkour places near me" on Dad's phone? -This guy. Stands watch shortly after breakfast, and an able navigation planner.  Cruise music director and feral inspiration for the rest of the crew.
