Their blog, Flyin' Sideways, is a fun read, especially for Virginia and me, because they document the upgrades to their boat they are making while cruising. These are the same upgrades we're planning for Oceanus. They added a water maker, 100-amp alternator and multi-stage regulator, new chain, new battery bank, the list goes on.

Their boat is the former Seadasha of Marina Del Rey. They changed the name to Flyin' Sideways to reflect their love of flying. As it says in their profile: "We've been skydivers and pilots for most of our lives. We're trading in plummeting towards earth at 120 mph +, for Flyin Sideways at 7-8 kph, much scarier than our previous adventures."
I admire them for taking off and making upgrades to their boat along the way. They also left their boat and went back to Arizona to work and replenish the cruising kitty. They are doing what it takes to live their dream and seem to really enjoy it.
