We are anchored between Tank Island and Wisteria Island just off Key West. We're still commissioning Tandemeer and doing projects like getting our outboard motor running reliably, re-bedding deck hatches and planning all sorts of other repairs like pumps, inflatable boat leaks, bedding down deck fittings to stop water leaks and a host of other issues that one just has to deal with on an older boat. We expect to have her prim, proper, shipshape and Bristol-fashion by summer, but right now she's a working boat readying for her first mission.

Dr. Peter is contacting Key West hospitals to coordinate a line of supply of valuable medical materials.

We were donated a dock space at the wonderful Conch Harbor Marina! Thank you Theresa, Harbormaster, for your help.

We're setting up TANDEMEER for the purpose of humanitarian aid. This means that we may not be bringing her up to full "Yacht finish, Bristol-fashion", but pretty close for crew comfort. As she's been…Continue
