The Masseys Aboard Snowcat
Welcome to Life in the Boat! We are Dean and Karen Massey from Steamboat Springs, Colorado, or as the locals call it “The Boat.” This blog is about our sailing life and our home in the Colorado mountains.
Before moving to Steamboat in 2005 we lived aboard a sailboat for four years with our twin sons, Jackson and Ben. Aboard our 431 Catana Catamaran, Snowcat, we sailed 15,000 miles through the Mediterranean Sea, across the Atlantic, throughout the Caribbean and US East Coast. Eventually we made our way to Honduras where we sadly sold Snowcat to return to the States.
Moving back to Colorado, we quickly realized that we were no longer urban dwellers. The small mountain town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado soon became home. Dean became a high school science teacher and Karen continued her career as a dietitian working for Colorado State University Extension.
The boys are on their own these days and we are going cruising in our new boat – Snowcat II. It is a Balance 451 catamaran and we are excited to see what adventures are ahead!
