About Our Contributing Authors

Sharon Kratz

Sharon & Joe KratzSharon and Joe Kratz have been liveaboards since 1997 in their 1987 Westerly Corsair II, a modified fin keel sloop named Rose of Sharon.  "We named her that because the original meaning of 'Rose of Sharon' is 'perfect,' when read in context of one of Jesus´quotes. When I saw that center cockpit and the Lloyds of London inspection mount, I said, "She´s perfect!"

They became cruisers in 2004 and sailed their boat to Panama from Guatemala in 2008. "Their only goal for 2008 is to sail to and explore the San Blas islands off the coast of Panama.

Sharon has written two books, "All the Time in the World," and "Nieto," and is a regular contributor to Telltales, the Texas yachting magazine.  She has also been published in other magazines as well as on the Salty Sailors website.

Yvonne Cameron

Don and Yvonne sail on s/v Usquaebach a 40' Gulfstar Ketch.  They left the Chesapeake in Nov. of 2005 and took a 9 month sail to arrive in their new home port in Jonesville Point, Roatan.  They are in the process of completing their house.

Yvonne says, "Between building, sailing, cruisers coming by and friends flying in to visit they have busy days. The last 3 -1/2 years have flown by and most of it was wonderful!"

Don & Yvonne happily refer people who come to the Jonesville area about what to see and where to go in and around Roatan ... Mangrove tours, Hole In The Wall, where to shop via dinghy, where to get a dive boat, etc.  They graciously take people into town who need provision shopping, or to "check in" at Coxen Hole.  They have a truck and only ask that the cruiser pay for the fuel.  They monitor 72 from early am, Don is up at 5:30am, till past dark, unless the weather is rough then till they're tucked in our bunks.  They also offer charters aboard Usquaebach.
