This is the log of our adventures aboard ‘Boundless’, our much beloved 1984 Passport 42. We bought the boat in August 2017 with the view to one day leaving the San Francisco Bay, taking a left hand turn, and not looking back.

After two years of completing a substantial refit of the boat and modernizing its systems, we headed out the Golden Gate on October 23rd, 2019, and have set upon achieving those cruising objectives, starting with the Baja Haha cruiser rally to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.

We spent the summer and fall of 2020 cruising the Sea of Cortez, late November and December undertaking two substantial remaining refit projects, and crossed to mainland Mexico in January 2021.

Given the limitations presented by the pandemic it has not been possible to move further south than Mexico this year, and we are now back in the Sea of Cortez for a second summer, awaiting the end of hurricane season before making our way to Costa Rica and eventually to Panama.

“For the most part, a sailboat navigates through its world of wind and water not leaving a single trace of its passage. Nothing is consumed. Nothing is altered. The winds and the water are left in exactly the same condition for the next user.”
