ELECTRONICS AND NAVIGATION
Her owners have always believed in the old adage that the boating they enjoyed was, "pleasure boating", which meant if the weather wasn't welcoming, they didn't go out. You will notice only basic electronics which allowed for their style of boating, even though, she has traversed coastal waters to Southern California and back, as well as spending her initial years on the Great Lakes.

OWNER REMARKS AND HISTORY
OWNER REMARKS AND HISTORY: TIVA was acquired by her current owner in 1969, after just 3 years in the possession of the commissioning owner. She began her life by spending 18 years in the fresh water of Lake Michigan. Her cruising time in the Great Lakes was spent along the west coast of Michigan, with regular cruises “up north” to Mackinac Island and into the North Channel of Ontario, Canada.
Her last 34 years have been spent in the fresh water of the California Delta, cruising and leading cruises in the Delta and San Francisco Bay with various boating/yacht clubs. Not a year has gone by that TIVA hasn’t enjoyed some “Down Bay” time, including a few trips out the Golden Gate and down to Monterey Bay. Most recently, October 2018, she had the good fortune of seeing no less than 30 humpback whales on an early morning cruise from Santa Cruz to Monterey.
She’s a cruiser!
