“ ten plus years to long “ - S/V Argosy has not left the dock in many years. Sunday was the day of re awakening for the 1956 Wonderer Class III slope. Many people know this design from Eric Hiscock and his world travels and the book about the circumnavigation with this vessel. Long story short she had no portholes in, no bilge pump, and we started the motor with a screw driver on top of loosing propulsion outside the harbor walls. Many people have said were crazy , other have said cowboys. We say just a normal day in the office ;). Complete honor to being apart of the process to bringing her back to her glory. @woodenboatwright has gone beyond most to make this a reality through dedicated and love for the sea and the restoration of the graceful lady. @woodenboatmagazine@woodenboatsarebetter@sail_republic_official@sailchecker#sail#sailinglife#woodenboat@mosslandingboatworks

It’s no secret that sailing is very close to our hearts, so following other lovers of the sea is one of our favorite pastimes. We even proclaim some of these guys Seashirt ‘ambassadors’ and will feature these not only on our website but here on our feed in the future as well

Do You Dream? .
In December 2016, a family I know well left Melbourne, Australia and flew to Tahiti. They boarded a yacht and over the next 385 days, they sailed home to Melbourne, enjoying many places, countless adventures and wonderful experiences along the way. This family of six covered 6,800 Nautical Miles / 12,600km.
Last week I had the pleasure of listening to them recount some of their stories at a Lions Club of Moorabbin meeting and amongst all the terrific tales, one thing really stood out to me. This dream was first hatched in the 70’s. A teacher showed a class a video of Alby Mangels and in the mind of one student, the seed of this expedition from December 2016 to January 2018 was sown.
So, never, ever give up on your dreams. “When Your Passion And Purpose Are Greater Than Your Fears And Excuses, You Will Find A Way”.

Hangileri yol hakkına sahip, hangileri yol vermek zorunda, işaretleyerek DM atar mısınız?.. Which ones stand on vessels and which ones give way vessels, could you send us by marking?.. 😜
Beautiful sunset walk along the beach on the island of Culatra, Portugal this evening to enjoy the close of the day... Hope you had the best weekend ever and ready for the week ahead... Just a few thoughts that I thought about whilst walking along the beach this evening... When we leave this world we take nothing with us, but leave only footsteps in the hearts of those we leave behind... Make sure they’re good ones, be kind... 😎🙌🏻⛵️🇵🇹

How many of us have thought that when we meet someone special or begin a relationship with someone that we will then be content or happy with life?
I’m sure most of us have done exactly that at some point or another... I’ve been alone for a few years now. After a few consecutive failed relationships I decided to take some time to myself and reset myself, so to speak. Those who know me will know I’m a very giving person, I’m one of those people that wears their heart on their sleeve, almost to a fault. But it’s who I am and its how I’m wired. But one of the problems with that is, that when I get into a relationship, I give my whole heart too quickly and from that very moment it goes into a heavy free fall plummeting into the abyss of doom. I had this notion that if I tried to make someone else happy, they would make me happy, but that is clearly not how it works and I’ll tell you why. Its taken me a while to learn from those repetitive mistakes, a lot of lonely nights being tortured by loneliness, the yearning and tearing my mind apart as to why it keeps happening to me, but the plus side it did help me eventually feel somewhat comfortable being alone, or a bit used to it after a while, for that matter. Then just over a year ago I realised something, a light bulb moment occurred. I realised something along with a few other reasons, but they all pointed to the very same thing…
“I” wasn’t content, or happy with life. And through some of these relationships, I was searching for happiness in others to fill my own bucket of happiness, and a lot of the time, and as the saying goes, misery loves company. So sometimes I would land up with people who were just as unhappy in their own lives as I was, where we were both expecting to have our happiness buckets filled when neither of us had enough to fill even just one, which would without a doubt land up in disaster.
So I decided amongst other reasons, including this one, to take time to work on myself, by not looking for contentment or happiness in anyone, but myself.
