Slappin Halyards | An Experiment in Extreme Family Blending


Slappin Halyards is an Instagram feed of our latest photo moments into our personal life aboard a sailboat in the San Juan Islands.  Starting mid June, the five of us will be living full time on a 50′ ferro cement ketch. For the summer, the Salish Sea will be our backyard hopefully getting as far North as Desolation Sound.  Once the school year starts again, will plan on hunkering down in Fisherman Bay of Lopez. Leave us a comment to arrange a hangout.  We love hosting company and  crashing parties.

  • Bob Jacobs - Hi Adam – I’ve got my boys Clayton (10) and Cole (8) a 15 ft. West Wight Potter – NONE of us know a thing about sailing and obviously our first task is to find some water here in New Mexico! Trying to get the damn lights to work on the trailer, but did start the outboard and it works! Fun to see your pics! Drop an email when you can. BobReplyCancel

  • Ellen & Stewart - Hi Adam – Fabulous visiting with you about your boat and boy the other weekend in Parks Bay. We hope to see you again sometime in the islands. Please do keep in touch and we wish you the best with your lovely adventure!
