Our names are Taylor and Conor, and we are currently throwing ourselves headfirst into the boating world. We have (pretty much) zero experience, but we are young, dumb, and full of adventurous spirit. From what I’ve read, it seems that both naivete and confidence are necessities when transitioning to a liveaboard lifestyle, and we have that in spades.
This journey is different from most other sailing/cruising blogs because we are a military family. Conor is an artillery officer in the Marine Corps, so the “Cannons” part of “Cannons to Cruising” refers to actual cannons. Conor says it makes us sound like we’re pirates, which I think is pretty bad ass. We have dreams of cruising one day, but right now we are trying to get our feet wet. We hope to inspire other military families to go against the grain and see the benefits of a simplified life that allows greater freedom.
For now, we are embracing the crazy and the “Oh my god, what are we doing?” moments. Follow us as we make all the stupid mistakes so you don’t have to!
