BoatBlogs owner CEO Ken Williams previously founded software publisher Sierra On-Line, Inc. in 1979, building the company from start-up to an international leader in pc software development and publishing with over 1,000 employees worldwide. He left Sierra when it was acquired by Vivendi Universal in the late 1990's. Ken started Talkspot (BoatBlogs parent company) in 2001 with a small team of talented developers and designers. Since launch, Talkspot's technologies have been used to build and host over 100,000 businesses and consumer websites for customers in over a dozen countries.

A personal note from Ken

My wife, Roberta, and I are former Nordhavn 62 owners, who decided that we wanted a slightly larger boat. We sold our 62 (Sans Souci) in 2004, after eight great years of world cruising, and moved up in August 2007 to a new Nordhavn 68!

We (with our two dogs) have now cruised over 50,000nm, visiting over 25 countries and completing a circumnavigation in 2016. 

Some of you may remember Roberta and I from our long distant working lives. We founded a computer game company, in 1979, called Sierra On-Line, and ran it through 1996 when it was sold. We made games like: Kings Quest, Leisure-Suit Larry, Half-Life and hundreds of others.

Thank you,

Ken Williams
