About the name?

Furthur became an icon in the 60’s culture when author Ken Kesey (One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest) and the Merry Pranksters also known as the Intrepid Travelers, boarded the colorfully painted, wired for sound bus and headed cross country. Infamous muse to the era’s literary giants, Neil Cassidy, became the “driver” hence the name of my auto pilot. The tales were told in what Newsweek called “an American Classic” by Tom Wolf, “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test”. The manifest, the destination sign on the front of the bus read; Furthur with two “u’s”. Given my passion for this erra and the spirit in which this voyoage was taken, i named the boat Furthur in honor of Intrepid Travelors past and furture.
