Dreams II

My mother sent me an onslaught of pictures this week as she welcomed her new Kadey Krogen, 'Olympia', to her new home in Stuart, Florida. After being built for the past few years in Taiwan, (you may recall this update from May) her boat has arrived stateside for the finishing touches, the most important of which is the stenciling of the name on the bow stern (I dont know anything). In January I'll be traveling to Florida for an emotional ceremony where we will scatter my Dad's ashes at a specific point in the harbor after cracking a bottle of Veuve (these boat people are crazy to waste such good champagne but apparently this is a tradition, and I'm not one to argue with that).


  1. She is beautiful! I'm glad she has arrived safely in the states and I'm sure you and your family will enjoy many great excursions with her. Congrats again!


  2. Beautiful boat! Sorry to hear about your dad's passing. I'm sure he would have loved it.
