Brad wanted to travel for his photography work, and after his dad passed away, he was able to purchase the sailboat with some of the life insurance money he inherited. It was a huge project, but Brad said it helped him heal during a really difficult time. Check out his incredible handiwork below!

    Oh, Brad
    Do I envy you. I served in the Air Force for a couple of years before having to get a Hardship Discharge. My Dad took ill with Arterial Sclerosis and had his legs amputated. After all the therapy he talked me into going back in the Military, but he wanted me to enter the Navy. I spent 8 years at sea mostly in the Med, Indian Ocean Area. I’ve actually been over most of the world. I love the peace and tranquility of the Ocean. I’m used to living in small areas and am currently trying to acquire the funds to get a small log cabin in a rural area. Off Grid! I would so much love to be on a boat. I know there’s a lot of work involved. Anyway, I just had to say, “Enjoy it for me”. Take care and safe travels.
