About Us


This blog is about our planning for our Great Loop adventure.

Who are we?

Barb and I (Ray) are Connecticut natives.   Both of us grew up in Stratford Ct where Barb attended Stratford High and I attended Bunnell High.  We met our senior year in high school, both went to UCONN and were married the October after graduation.

We are the proud parents of four children, Katie, Ray #5, Andrew and Erin.  We have our first grandchild Nick from Katie and her husband Dan (who is a B1 Bomber pilot).

Our trawler Liberty is our third boat and our first true motor boat.  Previously we have owned a Catalina 22 and Catalina 27 sailboat.  Named “Puddle Jumper” and “Daybreak II” respectively.
