Two and a half weeks into our new life as sea gypsies, we stumble through both fun and adventure in the Bahamas!
With our boat La Vie Dansante now officially ours and duly registered in the Ledger of the Deep (and with the US Coast Guard), we were ready to begin moving her to her new home at Naval Air Station Key West’s Boca Chica Marina … but Key West was about 160 sailing miles away and Barbara and I had never sailed by ourselves!
Renaming a boat is a ritual forged in lore and tradition. It is a mystical and significant ceremony. Our own experience would be no exception, featuring expired animals, feats of spastic and divine intervention!
