As we began the process of outfitting Endurance we tried to keep a few key themes in mind.  First, everything we brought on board, besides meeting the functional need, needed to take as little space as possible, be able to withstand the harsh environment on a sailboat, and be as environmentally friendly as possible. 

Finally, we wanted it to fit with the overall design of the boat.  Many hours went into making our choices.  We hope you’ll find them as useful and attractive on your boat (or RV) as we have!

Check out the items we have found to be extremely helpful for living in a small space (like on a sailboat) on our Shop page.

Interested in Crewing ?

Would you like to experience life at sea?  Are you ready for a real adventure?  Have you always wanted to see what it’s like to be sailing around the clock far from shore?  We occasionally have opportunities for someone to join as ‘crew’ on offshore passages ranging from one day to a full week.  As Crew you’d learn and assist in navigation, watch keeping, maintenance and repairs as needed, galley duties, and overall ‘deck management’.  All you’d need is personal rain gear and a great attitude.  We’ll provide life jackets, harnesses, and provisions (on board food). 

 For those with offshore sailing experience we’d love to hear from you as well.  Please send us your information in the Contact section including your experience and a sailing resume if you have one.  Capt. Mike will be in touch to discuss possible opportunities.

  • LOTS to catch up on!

    We are DONE with significant changes (and other famous last words)

    I was raised as a Catholic and even attended parochial school right up to the point they kicked me out in the 5th grade. I feel like I should start this newsletter as if I was in a confessional - Bless me readers ......

  • Green Turtle Cay to Exumas Sail Thwarted

    Why Resilience and Humility are Needed Onboard

    I returned to Endurance in Green Turtle Cay, Bahamas after a long hiatus for the Christmas Holidays to visit my kids and beautiful grandaughter, Rowan, and help Emma recover from Covid, late January......

  • Unplanned Re-Route

    The Bahamas sound pretty good

    We left the dock in Hampton, VA at 11:00 pm, November 8, on a cold, clear night. Whenever possible, I prefer to leave on long passages during the morning hours. It adds to the excitement of beginning a journey at the start of the day........
