Help us make this blog even more awesome (if that’s possible). By making a contribution, you will help us to tell stories that matter and bring enjoyment, entertainment and happiness in a world that is otherwise dark and cruel (OK maybe that’s taking it too far…).


Ahoy! Welcome Aboard Knots & Thoughts!

I’m Captain Plante. I write cool, 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 just 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 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!
