Welcome Aboard!


This is the log of the M/V Maerin, her crew and her travels. Learn about the vessel, meet her crew, see where she’s been and where future ports of call are planned. Check back for updates and for her current location! Thanks for visiting!

Some notes on the site and function:

  • The site is a blog, it is running on WordPress with NextGEN Gallery embedded to manage an extensive photo album. Captain’s Log posts are  GeoCoded , so our position at that posting will be pinned onto a standard Google Map. See the Location page. Don’t overlook the Photo Gallery, it expands on the photos posted in the blog.
  • Because it’s a blog format, visitors can log comments. It becomes more of a community interaction. You’ll find the comments open in the posting sections. Please, let us know you were here, leave a comment! Comments are what make the blog fun for us!
  • RSS feeds can let you know when areas of the blog have been updated. So if we add new photos, or new posts, you can get a note. If you see the RSS RSS icon, to set up the feed, just click on the icon to subscribe to the page. When that page is updated, so will your RSS bookmark in your browser bookmarks.
  • The blog has undergone extensive updating in the 1st quarter of 2020 and moved to a new server. If you discover things that are broken,the webmaster would appreciate knowing, so feel free to drop a line. 

Thanks for visiting, and remember, this is a blog, we really love getting comments, it makes it a lot more fun! So don’t be anonymous!!

    the only problem I see with your site is that real boats are S/V. –I’m sure the capt will burn some fuel over this one!
    Hope all is well, The crew of S/V Kairos

    Hi Guys! Looks like some great travels. Nice to have new adventures. Thinking about you, more than you know, since I visit your site and don’t let you know I was here. I’ll do better! Love you, your sis

    Hi guys!

    Website is great! I wouldn’t have expected anything less than this from you. Andrea and I had a great time together and she did a great job taking care of my little Keira when I was at work on Friday. Thank god your not in the Gulf Coast right now. I hope you are all (pups included) having a wonderful time. Thanks for keeping us all updated as to where you are, it is a nice way to keep in touch…

    Awesome website….great pictures….keep it up! It’s nice to know ya’ll (yeah, the southerners got me) are doing good. I know you’ve talked about this venture for some time now and I’m happy to see it all take place!
    So if you’re planning on coming down to the gulf any time, you might want to do it soon before these hurricanes level the place. 🙂
