In the last episode we began our race against hurricane season down the west coast of Florida, and in this episode we pause in Gulfport, Florida and tour the Catalina Yachts Factory with two friends (thx, D & M!). Also, I share some technical information about our decision to buy a Catalina 387. Then we take a wet ride back to Cadence, change the oil, and say good-bye to Gulfport!
Hope you enjoy.

Who Are We?
We're the Fosters, and we just sold our house , purchased a sailboat, Cadence, a Catalina 387, and sailed away from land. We're on a journey to minimize our life, learn to live on a sailboat, and travel the oceans.

In 2019, Matt quit his public education career of 15 years, and went full-time building his own business. Olivia is ready to explore the world, and so am I...and now, we're on a mission to Maine!

We're sharing this journey with you in hopes that it'll bring you a smile, provide something helpful, and maybe give a bit of inspiration to live life on your terms - to explore your world.

Join us as we take this journey into the unknown, and share some laughs along the way.
