Sam and Rev Crouse created What Yacht To Do to show how you can be sitting in your living room one day and then living on the water the next.

Sam is a former AF pilot and retiree from American Airlines. Rev’s background is in education and marketing. 

A few years ago on a trip for work, Sam found out about America’s Great Loop. He learned more about it on Captain John’s website and started to get obsessed.

So the search was on for a boat.

We had planned to look for a year and then get ready for the loop in a year.

Well, we found a boat in about three months. In Baltimore. We live in the DFW area.

We bought the boat in November 2017 and immediately winterized it. Did I  mention that Rev hadn’t seen the boat before we bought it? But she was 100% in favor of the purchase.

Also, we didn’t know how to turn it on much less move a boat that size from point A to point B. 

Even though there is so much we don’t know, we aren’t going to let that keep us from going for it.

So, we invite you to come along with us as here on What Yacht To Do as we learn how to turn it on, move it around, live aboard and go around America’s Great Loop.

Maybe someday, we will see you out here.
