Welcome to my new blog!

I’ve decided to create an online “log book” to document and share my adventures on and around “Jolly Mon”, my 1970 Tollycraft 28 Express Cruiser!

I plan to post stories about some of my trips, as well as some projects as I work to keep the old boat ship shape!

I’ve owned Jolly Mon since 2004, when she was purchased from a gentleman in Bellvue, Wa.  She was named “Voyager” at the time, and had the same owner for about ten years prior. 

Shortly after purchase, the boat was re-named “Jolly Mon”- a name that came from my enjoyment of Jimmy Buffett’s music, my jolly nature, and my last name!

  1. Ahoy!!
    Nice pic of your boat for a beginning blog post. Maybe see ya on “B” dock one of these days.
    I never seem to run out of boat projects……some big, some small…..but all needing a little attention. It sure beats mowing the lawn.

    I have two means I use to measure the quality of my boating season: one is the extent of my tan lines, an the other is the condition of my lawn… If the lawn looks nice, it hasn’t been too great a summer!
