About Me:

I'm not unlike many of you who've had successful careers, raised a family and are finally able to realize their dream of casting off the lines and embracing the cruising life. I'm enthusiastic, kind, blessed with excellent physical and mental health and pretty outgoing. So its now or never. I'm anticipating with some eagerness this next chapter of life, with the excitement and adventures (or misadventures- i call them opportunities for growth) that sailing around the world will surely bring.

I'm starting to shop for a seaworthy vessel and would love to get the advice of those more experienced than me - which I guess means pretty much everyone, hahaha!

I've settled on buying an AMEL 54 . . . though the upcoming visit to the Annapolis Boat Show in October may change my plans.

Sailing Experience:

Alas, though I've got 30 years of powerboating experience, my sailing skills are woefully inadequate. I have taken the beginning sailing courses and followed up with a few day sails and one overnight trip. But I am an excellent diver, spearfisherman, and can handle adversity in the water and on the boat. And the good news is that I'm always eager to learn . . . as I'm quite sure the learning curve is going to be pretty steep in the next few months.
