We discovered a stowaway!

Now that we have a handle on the situation, we are comfortable telling our readers about the most shocking thing that has happened aboard Sea Gem to date. A few months ago, Eric and I were beside ourselves when we found out that a stowaway had been living aboard our boat! Yes, you read that correctly - another human had been living on our boat, without our knowledge! Even our trusty scent hound, Moishe, failed to alert us to the presence of this freeloader.

In the weeks leading up to our discovery, I had noticed a few oddities I couldn’t quite explain, but in no way did I consider that another human was the culprit! Eric was actually the first to suspect something was seriously awry, and concluded that a “guest” might be the only plausible explanation.

Although I remained unconvinced, we decided to test Eric’s theory. Much to my dismay, Eric's suspicion was correct – I was pregnant! Come July, Sea Gem will have a new crew member. Although we know our new recruit won't be helping us scrub the decks anytime soon, we are still extremely excited to have him/her aboard.


  1. Hee, hee, hee! Once babies start to slither on their tummies, they make great floor scrubbers. Congrats!

  2. I like that idea, Ellen. A manual Roomba!
