Life as a Lightwave 38 Sailing Catamaran
When my owners first came to the nursery to pick a new baby, they had very firm ideas on how they wanted me to look.
They had chosen Lightwave based on my good looks and the fun experiences they had enjoyed sailing another member of my family, Inn For a Penny.
My dad, knew how he needed me to behave under all conditions, and my mum wanted to dress me the way she had always imagined.
So my conception and birth was underway with a much anticipated delivery . My mum and dad were so excited, they used to visit me regularly, and just sit with me to tell me how excited they were and that they couldn’t wait for my actual birth. Despite Roger having mini strokes with the colours they had chosen for my interior, my progress was swift and there were tears and loads of laughter on the day I was born.
My mum and dad, still marvel at what a beautiful baby I am, and keep me dressed to the nines for when they welcome our guests aboard. I must be the luckiest baby ever born, as mum and dad spend so much time just caring for me.
I have met so many new friends and had adventures sailing up and down the east coast of Australia. Last year the three of us spent time at some magic destinations, Lady Musgrave Island, The Keppel Islands and the Percys. I am very excited as the plan is to head out from Sydney again in July, and spend time just relaxing with mum and dad at all my favourites places between Sydney and the Whitsundays heading home again in late October, 2014.
Being a charter boat I welcome guests on board most weekends, and I love the laughter and big smiles from everyone on board and when they leave they say how amazing I am and can’t wait to come back and play again.
Did you know that I had real members of the first fleet on board this year, just look at the picture. Luckily mum and dad saved the poor convicts from the water once they made them walk the plank !!
I love it when I have a group of girls on board, they love to party and are always telling me just how beautiful I am and how they would love to own a baby just like me !!!!!
I even have friends in the water who love to come and play with me, I try to go quickly but they love to play chasings, they always get tired before I do, so I always win !
Mummy doesn’t really like people fishing on me, but sometimes guests just want to have fun relaxing and fishing off the back of me. The Hawkesbury River is a great place to relax, and just read and fish. Dorothy, one of our weekend guests, fell in love with me and just didn’t want to leave. I am just so popular with the ladies…………………….
Mum and Dad were very excited when we had celebrity Chef “Fast Ed” on board as the private chef for a special occasion for our group of guests on board. Mum and dad were also excited at the yummy left over food that he left for us to enjoy.
We have so much fun all together and I can’t wait for the time when just the three of us head off for an adventure that will take us travelling for a couple of years, just me and my mum and dad………………
