Every TrawlerFest includes at least one aspirational talk. Next month in Seattle, one couple shares the story of making the transition from dirt dwellers to capable cruisers. Rob and Deanna Piwowarczyk describe what it was like for them to “sell it all and move on a boat.” The name of the seminar is Making the Leap: A Cruising Couple Tells Their Story.
The Piwowarczyks did just that, selling their house and business in the mountains of Colorado and moving aboard a Selene 55 in Southern California with two 90-pound dogs. They’ll describe how they made the decision to “make the leap,” how they searched for and chose their perfect boat, and what they’ve learned along the way, including how to continue to earn a paycheck. And it all transpired more quickly than you might imagine.
