During the summer of 2010 my husband, Skip, and I had an oppor-tunity to take a six-week vacation. It was a long-awaited chance for us to cruise to places more distant than those we normally visit during our usual 17 days away. We looked forward to casting off from our homeport in Tacoma, Washington, and making a 1,000-mile round-trip excursion into remote parts of British Columbia aboard Integrity, our Dufour 44. But we were faced with the challenge of bringing along Beth and Sarah, our 16- and 9-year-old daughters, who were reluctant to leave behind their established social lives for what they feared would be a grim wilderness experience.
