Who are we? Great question. The answer would probably depend on whom you ask on any given day. 🙂
We’re husband and wife, Doug Hinschberger and Mary Lamberson. We married in July 2016 after meeting online and starting to date in September 2012.
We live aboard our 1997 Bavaria 46 Exclusive sloop. We’re currently moored in Tacoma, WA (USA) at beautiful Foss Harbor Marina. Doug is an inventory manager for JL Darling where we make Rite in the Rain products and Mary is a real estate broker.
Both of us have families from our previous marriages. Mary has four children (two daughters and two sons) and four grandchildren. Doug has two sons. All of them are on their own (now!), hence it’s the two of us on our boat.
Our plan is to prepare to cast off the lines in 2020 and head south to Mexico, making “the big left turn” out of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and sailing south down the west coast of North America. The Sea of Cortez and Baja is our first destination. Our dream is to continue with the “puddle jump” across to the South Pacific–Fiji and New Zealand 🙂
