Wanda Cashman’s Inspiring Life Transition Onto The Water As A Liveaboard, Boater, and Boat Builder

We’ve had to make a last minute change of program and welcome Wanda Cashman as our presenter.

After moving to Northwest in 2005 and living in one terrible apartment after another, two years ago, NWWB member, Wanda Cashman, found out that people actually live aboard boats. This intriguing idea and new lifestyle appealed to her husband, Dan and their teenage daughter, Miriam. “Why not, “ they said,  “What have we got to lose.”

Come and enjoy Wanda’s tale of their life change and all it entailed. Not boaters, they immediately joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary to learn how to boat. Their new life began on a sailboat that offered crowded space.

Their next step involved buying a much roomier and beloved Chris Craft that needed restoring, something they are doing while living on it. After losing her teaching job, Wanda was presented with the opportunity to retrain, and after much research and soul searching,  decided to attend the Seattle Central College’s Marine Technology Program where she is just now finishing a hand-built dinghy with the aid of a scholarship from the Antique and Classic Boat Society.

It’s an inspiring story of a woman with the courage to change her life in many ways with the boating lifestyle as her pathway. Join us and there might even be some of you out there who may go away considering, “What am I waiting for?”

Meeting Date and Time: Monday June 20th 7 pm to 9 pm. (Hors d oeuvres, snacks, wine, etc. are welcomed but not required. We enjoy socializing after the presentation.)
