About Us


We’re Susan and Tom, husband and wife - and Jack, our loyal dog

Susan Golden is a former ad agency owner who's into her second draft of her novel, "Halo Moon." Julia, the catamaran was named after "Halo Moon's" protagonist. Susan has studied ocean weather forecasting, route planning and oversees this blog.  She's Co-Owner and Co-Captain of Sailing Vessel Julia.

Tom Moisan is delighted to be retired, recently from his 300+ person architect firm, Ankrom Moisan.  He's ready for a new challenge.  He created and oversaw the outfitting plan of Julia, with comfort being the primary goal, second to safety.  He recommended the name Julia for their new catamaran since he'd been hearing about Julia for the past three years as Susan developed her novel.  Over the past three years he educated himself on diesel engine repair and electrical design. He’s Co-Owner and Co-Captain of Sailing Vessel Julia.

Jack Golden-Moisan is our loyal canine and the cutest little chihuahua mix. We had his DNA done recently (12 pages!) and learned he's part chihuahua and Jack Russel.  He brings us unconditional love and joy.  Jack is our Security Officer.
