This is the story of Trailer Sailor Steve and a boat named Skylark and how they prepared each other to go sail around in the Caribbean for a while.

Yes, I’m aware that this world does not need another sailing blog but I received a tremendous amount of information, hope and encouragement from the folks that have gone before me in this and I wanted to share my own experiences and the few original ideas I have had.

Skylark is a 27 foot, 1983 Pacific Seacraft Orion

  1. Wow. Awesome. Cruising the waters of the world living on the boat you have worked so diligently on.

  2. Good Luck, Skylark!

    I usually find these blogs years after they took place – for once I’ll be able to follow in real time. I’m planning to go cruising next year, and intend to do so on a boat of similar size, perhaps a pacific seacraft even, so I look forward to keeping up with your travels. Do you plan on taking the ICW or heading offshore?

    Take care – Tom

    1. Hi Tom and thank you! Where do you want to cruise? Skylark is solid but kinda slow. Mostly ICW. I’ll be leaving late in the season and don’t have he experience for a long ocean leg, but I may do some pieces outside. We’ll see how it goes. Steve

  3. I just left you a note on the finger pier. My Orion is number 82 built 03/84. Called Interlude. She was in South America for a number of years and was recently out of Annapolis. We are now in Elizabeth City along with my Flicka 20. I want to take some pictures of your canvas work and main boom arrangement. If you need any transport while here in EC, I’ll be glad to help.
