Everyone can take the helm even the most physically limited with head movement only! Galley, head, berths are all wheelchair friendly.

She has been outfit with custom accessible hand controls, ceiling lift, wheelchair accessible galley and head, transom elevator with safe access from all fixed and floating docks, below water level for adaptive snorkeling and scuba, to the massive flybridge. She will be demonstrating solar-powered air conditioning, generally thought impossible and capable of maintaining comfortable cabin temperatures for those unable to regulate body temperature while on anchor or acting as a base for adaptive scuba and snorkeling.
We provide a concrete, un-refutable example if someone with significant disabilities can live on a boat and circumnavigate the eastern continental United States and Canada why can they not live in their own home in the community. On a deeper and broader level, we are working to expand public awareness of the social, community, and fiscal benefits of home care as an alternative to nursing home institutionalization!
Give Perspective. Create Possibilities. Change a Life. Strengthen Community.
