In honor of our dog

Sailing together all over the Great Lakes

We had many pet names for Zeke, but the most famous and frequently used nickname was ‘Zeke E Boy’ originated by our niece, who also pronounced it best.  To honor Zeke’s legacy, we named our 1996 Caliber 40 LRC sailboat (purchased in October 2021), Zeke E Boy.
