The Great Harbour (PassageMaker)

Story by Bill Parlatore on 

When you want something bad enough, chances are you’ll find a way to get it or make it happen. It’s that way with life, and it’s the same with boats. If you really want a particular boat, I mean really want a particular boat, other things will fall by the wayside and other priorities changed to accommodate getting that boat.

Perhaps that is a good way to begin our story about the Great Harbour 37.

Gary and Sue Danielson live in Michigan, St. Clair Shores to be exact. The husband and wife team are professional people, accustomed to living the good life in a dynamic suburb of Detroit. They are like many other professionals in the world today: Gary has a law practice, and Sue is a nurse. They seem quite normal enough; normal, that is, until you start talking to them about boats…

You see, a few years back, Gary and Sue were world cruising aboard the small 25-foot Erickson sailboat, Moon Boots, twice transatlantic, living among fellow travelers on the French canals, and enjoying a life that only cruisers can understand. They savored the adventure of cruising, and the freedom a small boat offered-even if the layout was narrow and confining. Youth is like that-it’s truly amazing what we can live with at a younger age.

They had the champagne life on a beer budget… more of us should learn how to do that!
