The name Betty Jane from Albany, NY has officially been removed. We will complete the full de-naming and re-naming ceremony to please the Gods of the Seas. Not sure what it will all entail but we will make it a full ceremony and write more soon.

Our new name will be Shambala. We will put our home port as Littleton, CO.
Shambala is a buddhist term that means magical kingdom. Commonly it is understood to be a "place of peace/tranquility/happiness".
