About Me:

I was happily married until very recently and our 33 year marriage has ended. We have both changed so much over the years that we find we had very few of the same interests. It was a wonderful experience, we are parting friends, and we are both looking forward to the next chapter of the story of our lives! It is too early for me to "date" but never to early OR too late to make friends and enjoy life!
I would sail every day of the year in most kinds of weather if I could. I am always looking for friends to sail with and share the experience, freedom and joy of it. I am always eager share my knowledge of all things nautical to anybody that is interested. I sail in Charlotte Harbor in South Florida in the winter and points north in the summer!
I always look for opportunities to crew, whether its day sailing or long range deliveries! I also enjoy teaching the basics of sailing to people and have helped many new boat owners learn.
I have WAY more experience at restoring OLD sailboats than actually sailing them! I have had a dozen big boats and am always looking for that next diamond in the rough!
I am hoping to gain many sailing friends here and maybe even someone to share my Beneteau Idylle in Florida this coming winter! Its a big boat and really takes two onboard to be safe.

Sailing Experience:

I just love sailboats!
I have sailed ALL of them, some way more than others. We have stayed inside of protected water and we can talk about that later........

Want to learn how to restore older, neglected sailboats?
Jul 1, 2019

I will be beginning with square one on restoring a boat that has been sitting on the hard for many years. I will be doing a variety of jobs to bring her back from the brink of the landfill! If you want to learn about the process I love to share what I know and what I am doing. If you want to pitch i…
