It’s been a busy few weeks here in the Kidd house. Little man and I went north to visit family for a week while Daddy stayed here in sunny Florida working his tail off for his new store opening. When the tiny human and I got back it was phone calls, county office sitting, client work, it’s just been so very busy it’s felt more than a little overwhelming. For almost two weeks we didn’t get to be on/near the water, we didn’t look at/talk about boats, no moving forward planning was done and honestly that was stressful to all of us. Last weekend we put our foot down and declared it a family weekend filled with sunshine, water, and boats.
That’s exactly what we did over that weekend. We turned off our tech, our duties, the world, and just took the kiddo to a water park. The water park only lasted a few hours because the water was just WAAAY too cold, but we didn’t worry, we packed our things, dressed, and headed to a boat show. Our intention was to just look around and “shop” for a bit! Who doesn’t want to look at boats right! We didn’t find any that would fit our future plans but boat looking was fun none the less. Even though nothing suited our taste we did make a great connection. There was a yacht broker there who is going to get us in contact with someone in our area.
Getting Closer To Sunshine, Water, and Boats
We came home and spent our evening narrowing down the few boats we are really looking to get on in the next month or so to finalize our dream brand. Right now we are considering:
If you have one, know someone who has one, have a recommendation on one we’d love your input! Doug is 6″1 so our major concern is head room so that he doesn’t have to hunch over when we are below deck/living areas.

Morgan Out Island
I personally love the Lagoon Catamarans. I love the option for space for living full time. The is a living area where you aren’t fully below deck that has sunshine and views. Most have three cabins which could be ideal for family who want to come visit. I currently am the kindda gal whose family comes to visit and stays with me. Having an extra cabin could be for taking on crew, family visits, for our little guy to use as a play area for himself, for extra storage. The possibilities could be endless with a third cabin.
I also love the trampolines up front for leisure time, reading, we can school and get splashed, we can sun ourselves, we can jump a bit, they are just plain fun. As we will be full time I just want to be sure that the boys will have enough space, space for the tall one, and space for the tiny one to move and grow. Anything that keeps us closer to sunshine, water, and boats make us happy.
Since The Weekend
Since that weekend we’ve been to the dry dockage area three times to look at some of those boats. We have a number of dry dockage areas where we live as it’s a seasonal living area. That’s a major benefit to use right now because we get to look at the exteriors of what we are considering. Haul size, keel size, mast size, etc. We really want to start getting on some of our “narrowed down” boats to see how they will feel for us. Like I mentioned in “Here We Go-Travel & Homeschool” we are still months off from getting on our very own boat. But we really want to see how things feel for ourselves. After all, our major goal in life is sunshine, water, and boats.
