Where you there in 2016 when we launched our 53' long steel hull sailboat in Washington? Have you heard the stories?  Want to know ... what happened next, how one man built an oceangoing sailboat in St. Louis over 22 years, how we came to launch our boat in Washington, and what happened after the boat left Washington?

Come meet Steve (boat builder & captain) and Terry (wife and author).  Terry has written a book that is filled with stories and photos.  The book Steel Ambition is the story of turning a dream into reality.  Join us from the beginning.  We share our experiences and emotions through the challenges, apprehension, unknowns, risks, excitement, celebrations, and moments of joy.

You can also visit our website at www.steelambition.com for a sneek peak.

The book is 54,000 words and is filled with over 330 photos (most in color).

Stop by and visit a bit at one of our favorite places in Washington ... Marquart's Landing. They have cold drinks and fantastic food choices.

Books will be available for purchase and can be signed if you'd like.

We're very excited to be coming back again to the place where our boat was first launched.
