We are able to provide humanitarian aid to our Caribbean neighbors with our 68-foot cargo schooner, "Star of the Sea."

Isaac Prep

The Star of the Sea was just minding her own business resting from her recent Haitian trip and along comes Isaac. Thankfully all we got was some wind and high tides. It still takes a full day of storm prep to get her ready. Many thanks to Luis Acevedo, my Mexican friend and fishing mate from years past who was in town for a few days and spent the day before the storm helping me set anchors and extra lines. Change is in the air for the 'Star'
