Chuck Houlihan & Linda Edeiken left San Diego on 2005 and spent seven years cruising Mexico. In 2013 they headed south to explore Central & South America for two years before arriving in the Marquesas in June 2015. They cruised extensively throughout French Polynesia including the Tuamotus and the Gambier Archipelago.

Their blog – Jacaranda Journey – has excellent passage notes and trip reports, with updated reports on food and fuel availability and costs, weather sources and much more in “Other Good Stuff”.

In 2021 they sold Jacaranda and moved onto a 15m canal boat to explore the European Waterways.
