We bought Trace in 1983 from Freedom Yachts in Rhode Island. She came direct from the plant to a nearby marina where we fitted her out for cruising. We cruised up to Wellfleet, Cape Cod. We spent the next two summers living aboard in Wellfleet Harbour, Mass.
From June of 1985 to August of 1986 we lived aboard and cruised down the Intracoastal Waterway to Florida. We waited in Miami for good weather before crossing to Cat Cay in the Bahamas. We cruised the Bahamas as far south as Georgetown in the Exumas before returning to Florida. I should mention we did all this cruising and living aboard with our 80 pound lab Omish!
After the year off we went back to our teaching jobs in Sackville. Went back to Trace (on the hard in Florida) for several summers and cruised the Abacos, Bahamas. We then had Trace trucked north to Rhode Island and spent several summers in Jamestown R.I. At this time we cruised Narragansett Bay and Buzzard’s Bay and the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
Finally brought Trace home to Shediac Bay in 1992. In 1997 we cruised Cape Breton for six weeks. Our two stroke Mercury outboard died on that trip and was replaced by a four stroke 9.9 Honda. We purchased a new trailer and in 2003 we trailered to South Carolina and cruised to Georgia along the Intracoastal Waterway. Trace spent summers, until 2015, in our slip at Shediac Bay Marina.
Trace is now available for new adventures at Romeo’s Marine in Shediac N.B.
– The Freedom 25, a catboat that makes sailing easy even for the beginner. She is a boat not to be overlooked. At 25 feet, one would think she is a much larger boat. This powerful and sea-kindly boat has a spacious cabin and well thought-out creature comforts. She is a boat that will sail comfortably in a 15 knot wind maintaining a speed of 4.5 to 6 knots underway.
