Although it’s been sometime since we have written a blog, we intend to change that with a series of blogs on the refitting of La Creole.  As some of you may know, we bought a 1978 fifty foot Gulfstar, while still owing Sanctuary, our 41 footer. 

La Creole is a beautiful vessel that chartered out of St.Thomas for many years.  She was maintained in Bristol condition until sold to two more owners before we acquired her.  La Creole saw some neglect over a six year period coupled with her age, it only stands to reason that she is in need of a facelift as well as numerous upgrades to support our cruising lifestyle.

To follow will be our account of the tears, blood, sweat and love that have gone into, and will continue to go into La Creole until she carries us on to the next phase of our cruising dreams.
