About the Owners (current and former)

Sterling and Raymond: Bought Wayfarer in Branford, CT. Moved her to great Bay Marina in Newington, NH. When it came time to rename her, Jay liked the name Cruzan (as in rum) but Marty wasn't sold on that. In the end they settled on Cruz-In. In 2008 cruised Cruz-In to Boca Chica Key, Florida. They are both avid scuba divers.

The Bacons: Trucked Wayfarer from Anacortes, WA to St. Louis. They cruised down the Mississippi, to the Ohio River, down to the Gulf, and the Keys. For almost twenty years they cruised the east coat to the Bahamas, and all portions of the Great Loop save Chicago to St. Louis. Walt loved to make devices to increase the pleasure of boating on his LNVT. Some of his ideas can be found in The Hawse Pipe in back issues of Tuggers.
