John & Anne Wiley



I once had a dream to sail around the world for a few years. Unlike my dream of flying, it wasn’t strong enough to come true. Out by Point Conception is this relic of probably several people’s dreams.

9726 Dream Boat

How many owners did she have? Did any of them realize their dreams? Maybe just sailing around the SB coast? Out to the islands? Living on board in the harbor or at the exposed anchorage nearby? How did she come to end here? Did anyone salvage parts to carry on the story in another boat? Will another dreamer refloat her and have new adventures?

Maybe we’re known more by what we leave behind, than by what we dream. Or perhaps the dreams reflect a deeper self that we may never know.
