1484 Unzipped -- ???

Owner (email) Bill & Laura Jenks (mailto:jenks*spam-no-more*mashell.com)
Hull Number 1484
HIN  
Year 2000
Boat Name Entry When we bought our C34 we were looking at an 1988 model year C34. We rejected it, but as we were walking back up the dock we passed a new 2000 C34 and decided   to just have a quick look. The next thing you know we had made an offer and she   was ours. We had never done anything like that before and we both felt   disjointed, crazy, unzipped. Laura and I both enjoy spending time on board and   find that we can go for a quick evening sail and become unzipped from lifes
little problems.

Comments Our Catalina 28 was named C'est Si Bon but wanted to select a new name for our new C34, knowing that such a change was risky. My wife Cam and I purchased a book of boat names and began a tedious study, including selective elimination until we culled the list to three names. We selected First Light which matches our lifestyle - both of us being early birds, and often awaking at "first light". We enjoy the head turning as folk spot our boat with the large graphic name First Light added prominently on the aft portion of the hull.
