About Me:

OK, I admit it, I'm really bad at this. I hate being introspective and trying to make me someone I'm not. I'm certainly not perfect. As I review other profiles on this site I realize what active, adventurous lives some people live. I can't compete with someone sailing around the world, hanging out in the Med or the south Pacific. I'm an east coast guy and will probably always will be.

About me, I'm retired after a career in marine biology working for state or federal agencies. I've been calling Beaufort NC home for 20 years but I'm in a state of flux and doubt I'll go back. I spend my summers in upstate NY at an old family cottage on a lake and this summer left my boat in the Chesapeake to get her out of (mostly) the hurricane zone. Unless things change I think I'll stay in NY until it gets too cold for me then hop on the boat and head south to warmer climates. If the Bahamas is open to cruisers I'll head there again, otherwise probably Florida. I've spent 5 winters in the Bahamas, usually by myself, and love the snorkeling, spear fishing, bone fishing and just plain exploring.

I'm easy going, fairly fit, slightly immature for my age, and since I've been divorced for 7 years can take care of myself and the boat, either with someone or not. I do have a dog and as Winston Churchill said, "if you don't like my dog you don't like me".
