Snug Harbor and Crew

Snug Harbor is a 2001 Catalina 470 sailboat, hull # 97, owned by Charley and Mitzie Eddy.  Snug Harbor is normally berthed in Alameda, California with ready access to year round sailing on San Francisco Bay.

Charley retired in 2007 after spending many years as CFO of Intevac, a Silicon Valley hi tech company. He has sailed all his life and has owned Snug Harbor since 2001.  He likes working on the boat and enjoys personally doing most of the maintenance, repairs and equipment upgrades.

Charley and his wife, Mitzie, love taking friends out on Snug Harbor and introducing them to the experience of sailing on San Francisco Bay.  Charley also periodically takes Snug Harbor to Mexico and gets friends together to crew on the ocean passages and for cruising in Mexico.  Charley took Snug Harbor to Mexico during the winter of 2011/2012 where he cruised the Pacific mainland coast from a base in Nuevo Vallarta on Banderas Bay (just north of Puerto Vallarta) and again during the winter of 2014/2015 where he cruised out of La Paz, Baja California Sur.  Charley is heading back to Mexico in the winter of of 2018/2019 and will again be basing Snug Harbor in La Paz which is a dreamy location with easy access to fabulous cruising grounds in the Sea of Cortez.

  1. Hi, Charley! Love your blog. We are signed up to get updates. We had a great time and a great sail with you and Joe. Would love to get some of your pics, when you get a chance. BTW, we found a nice restaurant, one block from the cathedral in Puerto Vallarta, called Gaby’s. It had a charming garden courtyard with a waterfall, nice dining on the balcony and good food. It beats the overpriced tourist traps on the Malecon. Hugs to you, Mitzie and Joe! \Dorothy & Gary Wood

    • Gary and Dorothy,

      Glad you enjoyed the blog – it is fun to put together – plus you can see I used some of your photos. I have over a thousand photos, which I need to edit down before distributing. Once I get it boiled down to a manageable number I will publish them in a way you can get at them.

      Mitzie and I will be on the boat the first week of Jan and we will be sure to go to Gaby’s one night.
