We named our boat after our beloved Laika, a 13 year old Australian Shepherd. Laika, our dog, was named her after the first dog in space!
Laika, the boat, has two 260HP 5.0L Mercury engines connected to the Axius system. We’ve outfitted the boat with Garmin’s 740S GPS Chartplotter and 18HD Radar dome. A Standard Horizon GX2100 w/AIS VHF radio connects directly to the Garmin. A firmware upgrade in April 2011 added Skyhook to the Axius system.
We sold the MV/LAIKA in 2014 when we acquired the KAYLA, named after our new Aussie. We’ll continue to post here as we continue our exploration of areas throughout the Pacific NW.
