“Buying a Tollycraft opened up a world of new friends who share my love of boats. Some of my very best friends are people I met at my first Tolly Mini at La Conner in 2004.”
Joined the Tollycraft Boating Club: 2004
Occupation: Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (semi-retired)
What she’s doing today: Native Texan now living life in New Braunfels, Texas (between Austin & San Antonio). My Tolly 30, “Enough Time” is moored in Anacortes, WA and I enjoy cruising WA and BC waters in summer.
Her favourite Tollycraft Boating Club memory: The “Margaritaville Rendezvous in 2008! One of the largest rendezvous held at Roche Harbor. Never ending fun and memories.
She joined the Tollycraft Boating Club Bridge because: I wanted to get more involved with Tollyclub, meet new people who loved boats like me, and give back to an organization that allowed me to make so many life long friends.
What she’s most proud of during her time as the Tollyclub commodore: We were able to attract a higher than usual number of Canadian Tollys. That number varies throughout the years, but one of my goals was to make it as high as possible.
Her Rendezvous theme and its inspiration: Tolly Fiesta “Fiesta de Barco”; Being a native Texan, Fiesta was a way of life! Fiestas are celebrations, getting people together to have fun! That fit the Tollyclub perfectly!
Her Tolly: Enough Time, 1988, Tolly 30 Sport Cruiser
Final thoughts: Buying a Tollycraft opened up a world of new friends who share my love of boats. Some of my very best friends are people I met at my first Tolly Mini at La Conner in Sept 2004. Many of those people are cruising companions today as well as personal best friends.
