Their current adventure: the restoration of an 87-year-old wooden schooner named ‘Hindu’ (which has its own Wikipedia entry: Schooner Hindu) and the start of their charter sailing business.

I got this from Bonnie via a post to my Facebook Wall:

Hi Griff! Hoping you might vote for us to get a small business grant at Search “schooner hindu” and we should pop up.

Chase and LivingSocial are awarding up to 12 individual grants of $250,000 to 12 small businesses and to be eligible, Bonnie and Josh need at least 250 votes.
