As of September, 2015, Charisma made the over 7000 mile voyage from New Zealand via Tahiti and Hawaii to the Pacific Northwest. In 2016 we spent the season cruising the British Columbia coastline.
Final update: As of 2017 Charisma has been sold. You’ll likely see her in the San Juan’s and beyond as we sold her to a lovely couple in that area. Ann and I have loved the past five plus years living aboard, but after visiting Mexico, transiting the South Pacific and a season in the PNW, we had seen/done what we’ve always wanted to do. Now time to move on to other things. So…we bought a pickup and travel trailer and are currently “land-cruising” the US to see what’s out there.
