She is the home to Jean and Scott Adam. The Quest started an
"around-the-world" trip in mid December of 2004 after sailing
her to the States from New Zealand in 2002. This is planned to be
an eight or ten year voyage. We hope to post various aspects and
segments of the trip and our lives to this Web Site. I'm beginning to
realize that there are a lot of pages on this web site. I've tried to
limit the material here, by confining one location to one page, but you
see it hasn't always happened. I've also spent a little more space on
the more remote locations we've visited. Feel free to email me with any

Fiji has been so highly recommended that we spent
two cruising seasons in the Fijian Islands. Quest was back to New
Zealand for another hurricane season before we heading off for Hong Kong, and Phuket.

New Zealand and was sailed back to the United States in 2002 by Scott &
Jean Adam and various crew. The
2002 trip left from
Zealand and went to Alaska via Tahiti and Hawaii. This Web Site
features our past voyages from New Zealand to
French Polynesia, the
Islands, Alaska, British Columbia and

Mexico (twice) and returned north to
I'd also like you to see some sights around
Marina del Rey, our last U.S. port of call.
The voyage of 2005 started in
Mexico and continued south
to El Salvador and
Costa Rica to
Panama. From Panama we turned right and
headed to the
Galapagos and from there to the
Gambier Islands in the
most south eastern parts of the
Tuamotus. The Gambiers are a bit
near (or west of) Easter Island and Pitcairn Island, 3,000nm and 18 days
of sailing from the Galapagos. What a trip!! The Quest now rests (after
over 50,000nm of water under her hull) in New Zealand and we plan
subsequent trips from there.

our trip across the Indian Ocean, up the Red Sea to the Med. Hurry up

There are one hundred and fifteen (115) pages on this web site
and we've only crossed the Pacific! You want the truth? I've quit
counting. Follow the links to learn more about various aspects and
segments of the trip, and to link with some of my favorite Web sites.
Also, keep checking with us because I'm hoping that my skills will
improve and this site will become more appealing with time. The

Another aspect of our travels is friendship evangelism -
that is, finding homes for thousands of Bibles, which have been donated
through grants and gifts, as we travel from place
to place. We'll show you what wonderful turn of events have occurred as
a result of this endeavor.
This Web site is the first (and possibly only!) Web site
created by Jean Adam. My desire is to keep it up to date as much as
possible on our trip. But since this trip is a reflection of our life
and because life on a moving boat is unpredictable we expect this trip
to hold some unexpected surprises! This web site is definitely a "work
in progress!" I'm at the point now where I welcome any suggestions.
So, if you have some ideas, let me know!
