Ahoy! Welcome Aboard Knots & Thoughts!

I’m Captain Plante. I write fun and entertaining blog posts from my sail boat, Venture. If you’re cool with a respectful yet unfiltered point of view, then you’re in the right place. You can also view our projected upcoming sailing adventures via the countdown above. We recently finished a 4-day sail from Annapolis, MD to Norfolk, VA. We experienced glass seas and light winds as we crossed the Chesapeake. We will have a consolidated video of the voyage to share with you soon.

We’ve found a nice home for Venture in Virginia and are currently looking at Annual slips in the area. The plan is still to make it to Charleston, although taking some time to regroup and get work done is the current priority.

We welcome feedback and would love to hear any new ideas or collaborative concepts you have, so don’t be a stranger.

Reach out.

We hope you enjoy!

February 11, 2023 With everything going on in the world these days, I found myself becoming extremely pessimistic and borderline depressed for awhile. It’s easy to forget that we are human beings, not human doings. It seems that the recent power grab by corporations to restore their upper hand in the employee-employer relationship has rattled…
