This couple dropped everything to open a pizza boat in the Caribbean - Chicago Tribune

Sometimes you just need pizza. A few years ago Tara and Sasha Bouis had such a moment. They were anchored in their favorite bay near St. Thomas in the U. S. Virgin Islands. After years of living in the islands, this had become their favorite place to watch the sun set. Everything was perfect but one thing was missing: pizza. At the time the couple was working on guest charter boats, sailing out to sea for weeks at a time, Sasha as the captain and Tara as the chef. They had just returned home and were too tired to cook or take a dinghy to shore to track down food. So they spent the night eating microwaved popcorn and fantasizing about how great it would be if there was a pizzeria nearby on the water. Thus was born the idea to build a pizzeria on a boat-despite the fact that they hadn't heard of it being done before, and neither of them knew how to cook a pie. When pizza calls for you, you must answer. "Pizza speaks to everybody," said Tara, who is 32 and beautiful in a way that might be intimidating were it not for her sunny, disarming smile. "Food trucks had become a part of everyday life, food boats had not. We knew that the concept was strange, but thought it could work because the food is very recognizable. It was just another whimsical turn in the couple's career path. Just 10 years ago Sasha, now 38, was an MIT graduate toiling away in a cubicle at Standard & Poors, where he worked as a computer programmer for five years. "I thought I was living the dream but quickly got tired of it," he explained. "I was walking farther and farther away from my office on my lunch break, and I walked past a sailing school and thought, 'I wonder if I could get a job there. Growing up, his father taught him to sail on Long Island, and Sasha also competitively sailed while at MIT. He ditched Manhattan in 2005 and moved to Puerto Rico where he spent a year or two working on sail boats. Eventually he made his way over to the British Virgin Islands to teach sailing at a summer camp. At the camp he met Tara, a special education elementary school teacher from Indiana who was spending the summer teaching SCUBA to kids. They married in 2012. In the meantime, the two spent eight years working on yacht charters together, sailing around the BVIs. (A boat charter is basically a group of people that hires a boat to ferry them wherever they want to go for however long they want. ) Sasha captained the yacht while Tara was its gourmet chef, producing high-end food that made her a two-time winner in the BVI Charter Yacht Show Culinary Contest. It was after one of these charters that the idea for their food truck/boat was born. The couple began scouting out boats, and on the island of Tortola they chanced upon a 37 foot sailing/motorboat called Pagan. Designed by G. L. Watson and built in Sheffield, England, it had been abandoned for 10 years. "The interior had actually turned into a giant termite nest," Sasha said with a shudder. But it was the perfect size and shape for installing a commercial-grade pizza kitchen. Restoring the boat took about two years because they did all the work themselves. Sasha is a mechanical engineer by trade. What they didn't already know, they taught themselves from YouTube. The couple financed the entire operation themselves with the money they'd saved from years of working on boat charters. "No one-including us-had any idea if it would work," Sasha said. Knowing they'd need plenty of water for washing dishes, they installed a do-it-yourself water maker that produces 40 gallons per hour. To power the appliances, like a a 260-pound Hobart dough mixer, they outfitted the boat with solar panels. The electric oven-a double brick-lined Baker's Pride oven that can produce four pies in 15 minutes-is powered by a diesel generator. Instead of a regular weight scale, they opted for a hanging basket scale that's suspended from the ceiling so that measurements aren't thrown off by the rocking waves. "When cooking on boats, you have to be really careful about where you set things," Tara said, "The last thing you want is to have a really big wave and have a knife go flying.

Service history 1934–1945 The Potomac was originally built in 1934 by the Manitowoc Ship Building Company, Manitowoc, Wisconsin as the United States Coast Guard Cutter Electra. She was converted to serve as a presidential yacht and commissioned into the United States Navy in 1936. In the following years, the Potomac was heavily used by President Roosevelt, for fishing trips and informal political meetings. In 1939 the United Kingdom's King George VI and Queen Elizabeth travelled with the Roosevelts aboard the Potomac to George Washington's home at Mt. Vernon. On August 3, 1941, President Roosevelt left Washington to board the USS Potomac at the submarine base at New London. The Potomac then sailed for Appogansett Bay where the President did some fishing and entertained guests including Crown Princess Märtha of Norway. Eventually the Potomac anchored in Menemsha Bight in Vineyard Sound, where the heavy cruiser USS Augusta already lay at anchor. In the early hours of August 5, the...
