“Wherever we want to go, we go. That’s what a ship is, you know. It’s not just a keel and a hull and sails; that’s what a ship needs. Not what a ship is. What the Black Pearl really is, is freedom.” -Jack Sparrow in The Pirates of the Caribben

And our boat – our piece of freedom – is the Rustler 36 Artemis of Lleyn with the hull number 56. We have written a short post about buying her and a little about her history.

Over the winter of 17-18 she was at Ardfern having those jobs done that were identified by the surveyor. Since April ’18 she is our home.
