Kenny and Nancy call Oconto, Wisconsin home during the summer boating season where together they enjoy recreational boating on the Oconto River and the Bay of Green Bay. When boating season is over they become snowbirds and head south for the winter in their Monaco Windsor luxury motor coach named OWFISH.

Kenny lived and traveled in OWFISH with his late wife Barbara from 2002 until she had a disabling stroke in 2011 and passed away the following year. From then the OWFISH set, except for a short trip in 2013, until Kenny started traveling again with his new wife Nancy in 2014.

A Cruise to Hawai'i

Our trip to Hawai'i just got a dozen steps closer. We have just booked a 14 Night Hawai'i Cruise aboard the Golden Princess leaving from Los Angeles on Oct 24, 2012. Yes that's next year but it gives us time to pay off the credit card and save up some more money for the trip.

Our cruise will take us from Los Angeles to Hilo on the Big Island (where I used to live), to Honolulu, to Nawiliwili on the Island of Kaua'i, to Lahaina on the Island of Maui, to Ensenada, Mexico, then return to Los Angeles.

Shakedown Cruise

We launched the Shangri-La last Sunday but I still had to complete some systems before going out with her. So after finishing hooking up the fresh water system, and making sure I had a working head (toilet) on the boat, Barb and I left the docks for a short shakedown cruise down the Oconto River, out a quarter mile or so into the Bay of Green Bay, then returned back to the yacht club. The boat run good and handled well.

We're In!

After working on our boat almost everyday for the last 2 months, we finely got it in the water today. We still have a lot to do on our renovation, but at least the problems that I was dreading with hull issues are fixed.

As we were getting ready to lift it off it's jack stands, I had Barb get our camera to take pictures of today's events. But unfortunately, the camera batteries were dead. But fortunately, another member had his camera and took these pictures for us.
