In these pages you will find the story of the sailing vessel Soggy Paws, her crew Sherry and Dave, and her trip around the world.

Soggy Paws escaped from the Philippines in January 2022 to start heading west through Indonesia.

In an astounding change of direction, Dave and Sherry
bought a St. Francis 44 CATAMARAN in 2015! 
Soggy Paws the CSY sold in April 2016

Detailed Cruising Plans 


"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails.    Explore. Dream. Discover."      /)  /)                       - Mark Twain

"You only grow old when regrets take the place of dreams " 
                                                  - Seen on a bumper sticker

"Not all who wander are lost." - JRR Tolkien, the Fellowship of the Ring

"Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving. We must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it. But sail we must, and not drift, nor lie at anchor." - Oliver Wendell Holmes

"Adventure before dementia" - on a fellow cruiser's boat card

"Travelers don't know where they're going. Tourists don't know where they've been."  Kirk McGeorge on Facebook
