Hello cruising world!

We are Mark and Denise Gillespie aboard the motor vessel “Island Office” and this is our first blog.

We are within the 60-day window of untying from the dock and heading on our adventure known as America’s Great Loop.  Over the next year or so we will be motor boating through the North American rivers and bays, as well as the Intra Coastal Waterway (ICW). Since we are still relatively young to be doing this, we will be working along the way, thus the name of our boat.

We still have much to do to get the boat and our land home ready.  The list is long, but it will not stop us from going. And is if we didn’t have enough to do in preparation, we are getting really busy with new and existing clients.  Usually that is not a bad thing, and being owners of our own company it is usually welcomed, however right now all we want to think about is getting on the boat and going!

Our cruising vessel of choice (Island Office) is a Back Cove 37 that is manufactured in Rockland, Maine.  You can learn more about these fine boats at Back Cove Yachts.

We will be posting more on our adventures in the coming weeks and months.  Stay tuned!
