Maui's Oldest and Most Reputable Activity Company

In the 1920s, two brothers, Eldon and Afton, built a fishing boat in Port Townsend, WA, and set sail for Alaska. They eventually settled in the towns of Sitka and Ketchikan. Both married, raised families, and continued the Coon Brother tradition. But it was Eldon who carried on the family's wanderlust. In 1969, a shipwreck forced Eldon and wife Jeannette to sell their home, move south to Seattle, and, with the help of their two sons Jim and Rand, and daughter Pattie, build another boat.

Christened Trilogy in 1971, their new 50' sailing trimaran carried them for two years from Alaska to Mexico, Central & South America, the Galapagos Islands, and eventually, the South Pacific. It was there they decided, because of limited funds, to sail north to Hawai‘i and work until ship stores were replenished, before continuing their "around the world" Odyssey. But, as Jim and Rand are fond of recounting, they not only fell in love with the islands, they fell in love with a couple of islands girls as well and settled instead on the island of Maui.
