Welcome to Missy Goes Boating

For the past 20 years,  I have been cruising the Pacific Northwest in my 34 foot Bayliner "As You Wish". I manage to get out most weekends from April to October with a couple of one week visits to the Gulf Islands or Desolation.  I love a good dock party or a side-tie in a remote anchorage and live for flavourful snacks, fun cocktails, a stack of magazines and a healthy dose of dock talk.

Missy & Jonathan

Hi! I'm Missy and this is my big red dog, Jonathan. I am a weekend warrior who loves to cruise the Pacific Northwest. I am a shopper and love cool products that actually work. My friends and I spend countless hours floating, sipping beverages and talking about what works and what doesn't. We didn't invent any of this stuff but we sure like to think we did.
