Just Ducky under Sail

Welcome to The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast (STBSP) Ep, 180, a porch chat with Mahlon and Linda Stauffer, who have been cruising the ICW to Florida and the Bahamas, from the Chesapeake Bay, for the past 5 seasons, aboard their Island Packet 35 “Just Ducky.”

Having met them years ago on a Hot night in the mooring field at Hances Point Yacht Club, we’ve been sailing and hanging out swapping stories for a good long time, and it has been way past due that we sit down for a chat on the podcast. This will be the second Hometown Lancaster, PA cruising couples I’ve had on the Podcast, Maris and Linda aboard S/V Amekaya were the other ones on episode 71.

Nothing to sell, no blogs or YouTube channels to promote, just great stories and tips for venturing up and down the east coast in and out of the ICW. I love that they made the plans to go cruising in retirement and they are out there living the dreams year after year. Inspiring stuff for the rest of us workaday grunts.

If you see Just Ducky out and about, wave a greeting and exchange boat cards!
