Bora Bora

Our delivery boat has been delayed by about a week. We should be getting it next Friday tho! Then we spend a few days prepping the boat like wrapping countertops n stuff to protect it from the elements. We should be outta here by the 3rd or 4th!!! Can't wait so excited to be out on the ocean again and to get into warmer weather for sure!!! We haven't been sailing all that much because of the heavy mist here. This is what it looks like when we actually do go out for a sail tho lol...
Exciting stuff huh!? Lol you get this creepy feeling pirates are about to emerge from the mist all around you! Still fun tho;) Ty has been taking us off the dock and sailing almost the whole time. Still learning how to dock tho. 

Well we have some awesome news!!! We got a job as captain on a private catamaran !! It's a 37ft cat built in 2001. Inside was remodeled in 2010. We met the owner last night and he wants us to sail around the most exotic places in the world with him! He wants us to fly straight to the boat from Nice when we get there. The boat is dry docked outta the water right now in Raiatea French Polynesia. Once we get there we take a look at the boat and inspect it, have it put in the water and fix anything that needs fixing. Then when the boat is ready he will fly out and meet us and on to Bora Bora for the first stop!! We stay on the boat and take it wherever he wants to vacation next and he flies out to meet us for a week at a time. If you don't know Bora Bora you must google it. It's gorgeous. It was where they filmed Couples Retreat!!! 
To start with we will be working for him for 6 months at least. After 6 months we decide if we want to stay and continue sailing or if we want to quit and do something else. Can't imagine why we wouldn't continue but who knows what the future holds;) we definitely did not foresee being able to do something like this so early in our career but omg this is goin to be awesome!!!! He is very active too. He likes spear fishing, diving, hiking, fishing, sailing of course....biking n running....this is gonna be quite an adventure!;) plus we will be getting paid so we can save a little money and we have allowance for boat upkeep n maintenance and food n stuff...
