The Crew

Jon is a retired Naval officer learning to sail with a crew that doesn't necessarily take orders or care much about rank. As he recovers, we're all waiting to find out what he will do when he grows up.  In the meantime, he's happily sailing again.

Megan is a systems engineer on sabbatical. As such, she has designated Jon as their vessel's Chief Engineer, and supervises all mechanical and electrical work from a comfortable seat in the sun.  Megan also spent some time in the Navy, and thanks the institution for teaching her to sail a real boat in addition to letting her play with its fighter jets and capital ships.

Ronan is the studious bookworm with a sense of humor so dry the desert seems humid (or maybe that's just climate change). Always curious and bored with what he already knows, he's enjoying boat school.

Daxton is the comedian and performer who never can pass up a stage. He's always devising new ways to test his boat school teachers and principals.

Athena is one princess of a cat. Sleek and nimble, she's confident that she is in charge, and that the crew exists strictly for her benefit. A one time deserter and noted liberty risk.

Poseidon is Athena's big brother.  He's big, not always graceful, and is prone to seasickness. He's also the most tolerant cat in the world, perfectly content to be treated like a child's teddy bear, which is exactly how Daxton sees him.
