May 2012 Update

We have just lowered the price of the epub books from $7.95 to $6.95! Woo hoo!

Part 1 of The Unexpected Circumnavigation is available in e-pub at Lulu, iTunes, and Barnes and It is also available in paper format from Lulu and Amazon. Currently, Part 2 is available in both paper and e-book formats at Lulu. Part 2 should be available at the other retailers within 10 weeks. We’ll let you know when the other sites have the books listed.

If you’ve read either book and liked it, please write a review on any of the retail sites above, or on We’d appreciate it!

Our upcoming workbook, Recipe for Success: What Cruising Aboard My Own Boat Will Cost Me was about 95% done when Keith was born. We haven’t worked on it since, but we plan to finish it as soon as Keith is a little less needy.

Christi will start working on The Unexpected Circumnavigation Part 3: Oman to Gibraltar as soon as Recipe for Success is done. We estimate it will take her about 10 months to write it once she gets started.

In personal news, Keith is now 8 weeks old. Right around Keith’s one month birthday, he turned into a colicky screamer. After about 2.5 difficult weeks, we figured out he has acid reflux. Christi changed her diet and we bought some herbal remedies. Keith is now doing better overall, but he still has bouts of pain. When he is feeling good, he is absolutely adorable. He loves to smile. 

Keith has recently started to coo. He is currently learning how to use his hands. It is fun to watch him figure out things that we take for granted.

We’ve taken him out on three boat rides now. He seems to be indifferent to the boat so far. We got him the smallest life jacket that West Marine carries, but as you can see, it is huge!

Someone asked if we had Baby on Board burgee. We don’t, but we do have a Baby on Board sign. Keith wasn’t happy when we snapped this photo.

  1. Elijah had acid reflux as well – no fun! I love hearing about it – and he is SO CUTE!

  2. Great shots! Sorry about the acid reflux. Hang in there!

    Does he sleep well with the motion of the boat?

  3. Ann, over the weekend, we spent the night in an anchorage. It was very protected, so there wasn’t much roll, but there was a little. Keith slept for 7 hours that night! So, I guess the answer is yes, the motion of the boat must make him sleep more.

  4. Our youngest grandson, now one year old, has been a screamer in similar pain, too. I don’t envy the parents or the baby, but it has gradually gotten better and I suspect soon it will be over. Hang in there. And like your boy, ours is so cute when he feels well! All your efforts, empathy for Keith not feeling well, and lost sleep is, and will be, so worth it.

  5. Hi guys, so great to see little Keith in these pictures he is adorable. Sorry he is uncomfortable sometimes I know how hard that can be, but I can tell you are handling perfectly and having a blast with him. Sorry you could not make it to the picnic I actually was not there either because a client of mine was in labor. 🙂 Hopefully you can make the next one. Also, thanks for tne recent referal I will be calling her today. take care and hope to see you soon.
