Our boat – The Little Penguin – is a 19′ Macgregor – she’s small, wide, and doesn’t go very fast unless she needs to. We love our boat, and the freedom she affords. A kind of sailboat, and a kind of motorboat – she sails a lot better than any motor boat out there, and she motors much faster than any sailboat. She’ll sleep 4, 5 in a pinch. Pretty much every weekend Risako and I are getting out to explore the islands around Sidney, BC. Crabbing, fishing, sailing, exploring – these are a few of the things we’ll be blogging about as we take The Little Penguin out and about. The name comes from the children of the previous owners who thought since it was black, white and a bit wide it was just like a little penguin.
