Cyber Dead or Alive – The Boats
In the continuing saga of The KindleKat Series and boats, this blog is dedicated to the boats from the second novel in the series Cyber Dead or Alive. As a reminder (not a spoiler alert) Cyber Dead or Alive is the prequel to Cyber Seventy-Seven. It explores the back story of Blaze and Carla Heaton, Kindle, KindleKat and how they all came to be part of an international cyber crime solving team.
As the fans of the series will recognize by now, bad guys tend to travel in power boats and good guys and gals go for sailboats. Preferably catamarans over monohulls since you’re much less likely to spill your martini on a nice stable catamaran than when you’re heeled over on a monohull.
Lagoon 450F – (KindleKat) This boat begins life as Mama Bear in the story and is renamed KindleKat by Blaze. Historically, it’s considered bad luck to rename a boat and perhaps it is, as we see later in the Cyber Dead or Alive story.
We chartered this boat in the British Virgin Islands as we were researching Cyber Dead or Alive and I can say without hesitation, it is a great live aboard boat with lots of room and its remarkably stable in stormy waters (we even have the video to prove it).
Lagoon 380 – (Baby Bear) In Cyber Dead or Alive, Baby Bear is one of three Lagoon catamarans in Joshua Solomon’s charter fleet based out of Panama City Beach, Florida. Baby Bear unfortunately meets an untimely end when Hurricane Michael hits the Florida coast in October 2018. https://www.cata-lagoon.com/en
