Do you want to know what is like to sail across the ocean? Cruise for two years in the remote areas of the Sea of Cortez? Here is your chance to live the cruising sailing adventure and see if it is for you. The links on the right navigation bar are our catamaran cruising stories, diaries, and cruising logs as we travelled in from 2006 to 2008 covering 12,000 miles from from Vancouver, Canada to Mexico, the Sea of Cortez, Mexican Riviera, and then an offshore passage from Mexico to Hawaii, 3 months in the Hawaiian islands, and finally our crossing from Hawaii back home across the Pacific to Vancouver on our catamaran, Light Wave.
We have also added some links to our more recent annual explorations up to Desolation Sound, still one of the world’s premier cruising grounds (albeit only from June to September…lots of rain in winter)

I’m trying to do my homework on building a catamaran. I live in Saskatoon and so a prime requirement is that it be trailer friendly in order to transport it to water after building, and to store it on when not in use to save on the mooring costs.
I came across your website and it’s inspirational to me to see someone who has already built one at home.
I’m heading for retirement and would like the challenge of both the build and the liveaboard experience.
I’ve been looking at the MIke Waller designs, especially the TC 670 and the TC 750, and now using your 9 design essentials to look at them again.
My main question today is if you would be receptive to some questions about design selection and practical use of a design on the water.
Thanks for your time
