Sailors Exchange….Vows.

Hands down the most amazing thing about living on a boat and being a part of the sailing community are the interesting people that you meet.  Our friends, Jim and Denise, decided to get married the other day.  Our formal invitation consisted of Jim shouting to us through the marina’s bathroom door while we were showering, and asking us what we had in store for the next day.  When we said nothing, he told us to go to Sailors' Exchange, where he works, at 2pm the next day for him and Denise’s wedding.  Imagine our surprise when he said this. The celebration was an informal one to say the least, but the love in the air was certainly palpable. With the vows exchanged right in the middle of the store, and the part of the marriage officiant played by Clay (current owner of Sailors Exchange), we toasted to Jim and Denise’s life together as husband and wife.  Congratulations to you both!


  1. What a great story and an excellent example of why the live aboard life is so rewarding. We love the little table set up too - cake, flowers, champagne... they didn't miss a thing!

    1. It was definitely a great celebration, especially considering how quickly it was all put together. Very sweet and fitting of both of their personalities.
