Couple’s Sunken Dreams

  My boyfriend (Tanner, 26) and I (Nikki, 24) had planned for a year to buy a sail boat, live on it and sail to the carribean. Our future plans were to sail the world one day. We sold all of our belongings and car to buy our 28ft sailboat and moved into it with our 2 year old pug, Remy. We had been living on it for a year and were headed for a trip to Key West from Tarpon Springs Florida after working in a boat yard & delivering boats for a few months learning about the boating world. The day after we had embarked on our journey we motored in to Johns Pass to anchor for the night and ran into a submerged object in the water and our dreams and hard work sank beneath us. We lost every single one of our belongings with no insurance, but we all made it to land alive & we are not giving up on our dreams!   The first thing we are doing is salvaging the lagniappe. We arent giving up on our dream God Bless & Thank you to every single person who donated, you don't know what it means to us! Any additional donations will go to our next boat in order to keep this dream alive.   Before  After
