Erika and Charles (captain) Lelievre lived on their boat for 9.5 consecutive years, as well as did some cruising with their daughter. Their homeport was Stamford, CT in Long Island Sound. Lucie was brought home to the boat as an infant and spent the next 6 years of her life aboard our home. They have lived on both sail and power boats. Erika owns an online retail business (www.energyonthehook.com) and homeschools Lucie, and Charles is a broadcast engineer, broken-boat engineer, and captain.
They have recently had to put the dream on hold and move to land to care for ailing family, but they'll return to the water as soon as they possibly can. The gills are drying out!
