Barb and Chuck celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary in 2012

Tusen Takk II (a “thousand thanks” in Norwegian) was a 2001 Kadey-Krogen 48 North Sea trawler previously owned by Chuck and Barb Shipley — formerly of Savannah, GA. She was purchased in Stuart, FL in April 2005 and moved to their dock on the Ogeechee River in May 2005.

On July 1, 2005 the Shipleys sold their house and cars, left Savannah and began living aboard Tusen Takk II. This web site was intended to keep their family and friends updated about their travels.

In mid-September of 2019 they sold Tusen Takk II and commenced living full-time in their 40′ RV.  They intend to keep the name of the blog and continue to report on their travels.
