About the Owners

The Goldingays: Fletcher and I purchased Sheryl Ann from the Toews at the end of October in Seattle. We met a little over 3 years ago (2011) and immediately bonded through boats. If there was ever anyone who loved being on the water more than life itself, it is my father. He has always managed to own a boat and make it a priority to spend time on it. My dad loved sailing but after having three daughters and a wife that gets seasick, he traded in that lifestyle for a small ski boat. We lived in the suburbs of San Diego and spent almost every weekend on the bay tubing and learning to water ski. I found out quickly at a young age that I am much like my father when it came to boating.

Fletcher grew up in Seattle with parents that also loved to be on the water. Fletcher's dad, John, is quite the fisherman and used to take Fletch out on a drift boat to catch Salmon. They would also go sailing, rowing and kayaking. Pretty much anything that got them afloat. So naturally, after Fletcher and I got together, we boat our first boat.The more time we spent on the water together, the more we realized it's where we belong. It became our dream to live aboard. We are getting married in January 2015 (on a Ferry boat in Seattle) and are very excited to start our adventures on Sheryl Ann (with our big old Labrador Benny too!)

The Toews: When I was born back in the mid 1950's, my parent's favorite television show was called "Waterfront", starring Preston Foster. It was about a boat captain and his tugboat the "Cheryl Ann". My parents so enjoyed this show that they named me after the boat, exchanging the C in Cheryl Ann for an S. When my father found out about my husbands love of tugboats he felt it necessary to relate the story of how I was named. Needless to say, when we bought our LNVT, my husband and father stated that there was no other name that could be given to her, so she was given the name of "Cheryl Ann".

Since buying and moving aboard our 41' Victory Tug the "Sheryl Ann" in 1999 and 2000, we have thoroughly enjoyed our cruising lifestyle. We have taken her from Seattle, WA to Seward, Alaska and back again and now we our on our second trip north. This year we plan on going only as far north as Skagway and as far west as Sitka. We plan to spend our summers cruising the Inside Passage of Southeast Alaska and British Columbia taking full advantage of the numerous coves and anchorages.

Now due to medical we have to place Sheryl Ann for sale. we hope that someone will buy her and love and use her as we have.
