About Me:

Having grown up in Miami and attended college in Santa Barbara, California, I’ve lived in Miami, North Carolina, Virginia Beach before returning to The Florida Keys and living aboard a 39’ sailboat for ten years in Marathon. Currently living on the west coast of Florida and dreaming again of living aboard and cruising the Caribbean. A certified scuba diver since 1967, I studied underwater photography in college and love anything related to the sea. Last year I spent a a couple of months visiting Guatemala and Panama and would love to find that special person to share sailing their coasts and offshore islands and exploring their inland communities. Of course, the trip to get there would be the icing on the cake, but I’m so anxious I’ve been searching for a 32-42’ boat that is already there. I enjoy most music, but I am a ‘folk-singer’ by heart. There has to be room for at least one guitar, a mandolin and a handful of harmonicas on my next boat! Photography and diving are my passions. Looking for a sailing partner to share it all.

Sailing Experience:

I’ve owned a series of boats (26’ Westerly, 31’ Southern Cross, 48’ Cheoy Lee and a 39’ Allied Mistress) on which I’ve sailed the Chesapeake Bay, the Florida Keys and the Bahamas. I’ve recently chartered in the San Blas Islands and can’t wait to return for a longer visit to that beautiful, primitive paradise. Just found my next boat and waiting to close on it. In the meantime, I’m itching for this pandemic to subside so I can head out on the next adventure.

Sailing Qualifications:

A power boater since I was seven years old, most of my sailing experience has been In the waters surrounding Florida and the Keys. I love anchoring in quiet places and experiencing all the ocean has to offer. Trips to the Bahamas on my and other’s sailboats over the years have given me the experience needed to move into the next chapter of my life.
