The Captain, Matt
Before we set out on our adventure Matt worked for 10 years as a licensed plumber in the greater Boston area. He started his business when he was just 18, bought a house and shortly after began saving to one day purchase a catamaran. Prior to owning the Lagoon 380, Matt had owned and had experience on small power boats, but sailing experience was minimal. He made many trips to Florida in the spring of 2017 to try to find the right boat for us to start our adventure with. He has now been and experienced many miles as the captain and is working his sailing skills.
The Crew, Stacy
Stacy (I), grew up in Vermont, attended Stonehill College in Easton MA, and after graduation began my teaching career in Brockton MA. I met Matt in the fall of 2013, where I first learned about the idea of sailing. I had no experience with sailing and sail boats, only small power boats. I completed my 6th year of teaching in 2017, at which point I took a 2 year leave of absence to try out this sailing thing. I have now lived aboard s/v Roxy Dog for about a year.
First Mate, Roxy Dog
Roxy is our 11 year old pitbul/ viszla mix. Prior to moving on the boat her favorite activities were chasing squirrels, running in the park, and going to work with Matt. Now she enjoys sunbathing on deck, swimming at the beach, playing in the sand and cuddling with us in bed (she has actually become quite lazy these days!).
