In July of 2022, the JMYS team was in remote Cape Charles, Virginia working aboard Miller Time, a Kadey Krogen 58 that has since listed and sold with JMYS. We spent a few days aboard at the dock, taking measurements, filming the Talk Through Tour, and only leaving the boat for lunch runs or the occasional stroll to stretch out our legs. On one of these outings, Jeff noticed a familiar sailboat docked just a few boats down from us in the small marina. He came back to the boat to deliver the exciting news to our team and owner of Miller Time, Scott Miller. While Jeff recognized Britican from YouTube, Scott and his wife Teri also knew of Kim and Simon from Britican, having met them on a cruise to Charleston a few years prior.
As you can imagine, a July day in Virginia meant extreme temps and blazing sun beating down on everything and everyone. Jeff announced to the team that he was going to invite Britican for an interview and he was sure they would come because the amenities aboard Miller Time included air conditioning and an icemaker – both things that Britican was needing on this particular sunny day. A few minutes later, Kim and Simon were in the saloon of Miller Time getting to know Jeff and their conversation is now our latest Cruising Conversations!
