"Keeping a good spray rust remover and a bottle of stainless-steel polish handy is key to staying on top of the stainless steel," Teri said. "Whenever we get into a marina, Greg usually washes the boat and tends to any scuffs. Keeping the fenders clean is a constant battle, but we found that dirty fenders can be hard on the hull. If the decks start getting yellowed, we use a mild solution of oxalic acid. In port, we remove the cushion covers and wash those, too. It's an entire day of cleaning, but then we can kick back in the glow of Greetings." Greg has sailed all his life, including many races to Mexico and Hawai'i. The couple met after Teri took up sailing in 1998, the year that they crewed on the same boat. Both sailed the 2004 Sydney-Hobart Race. The next year, they bought Greetings. Greg sold his share of a family construction business to subsidize their voyage, and Teri gave up working in marine sales. Teri's 12-year-old daughter, Sierra Behlmer, joins them on Christmas and summer vacations but stays with a grown sibling when school is in session.
