This blog is about Liliane, Mike and Scupper aboard Meikyo, our Norseman 447. Liliane is originally from Quebec, Mike from New Brunswick. Scupper is from Tasmania. He is a Havanese dog, although we think of him as our own Tasmanian Devil.
We purchased the boat in Connecticut July 2009, and then our adventure started. At the time we left with Brandy, our golden retriever. Sadly she left us in March 2011 in Panama at the age of 14 1/2 years.
We are travelling the world, making new friends, exploring new dive sites, enjoying new experiences. Liliane, as a Registered Massage Therapist has treated many people during our journey. Mike of course being the luckiest.
Meikyo is a 1985 Norseman 447 (Robert Perry design). The name Meikyo comes from a shotokan karate kata which translates as “clear mirror, or mirror of the soul”.
