About Us

We bought our 1983 Aloha 34 “Ragnarök” in February 2014. Check out previous posts for the 2+year refit. We left Knoxville TN in July 2016 down the Tennessee-Tombigbee waterway. Now follow our journey as we head south!



I am CJ.  I will always be a TN girl, go vols! But it’s time to travel and see the world. I love all things that have to do with water, including fish, whitewater, scuba, and sailing. I am also a nomadic gypsy mermaid, which is why it only makes sense to go on this crazy adventure! I enjoy blogging about our adventures.




Erik the Extreme is his nickname, which is pretty much all you need to know. He loves a challenge, and what better challenge than solving the great puzzle of an old boat. He has been dreaming of sailing for a while and is finally seeing his dream come to fruition. He is extremely intelligent, detail-oriented, and loves to research. Sometimes he also has time for other things besides boat work like kayaking, rock-climbing, and snuggling.
