About Me:

I thought I would give a little update on my life. 2020 looks to be the year that I make the move to full time sailing cruiser. There are a huge number of things that have to be done this year. Most importantly, I have to choose the new boat. Lately I have given serious thought to life on a Catamaran. I went to the Annapolis Boat show this past fall and fell in love with a couple of models there. Decision, decisions, decisions. Actually, if I want to set sail by the end of 2020 this decision must be made soon. I am really considering buying my first brand-new boat! I still love the Island Packet, but for overall resting comfort and livability the catamaran seems the best option. WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS LADIES?????

I am a widower. I still have the dream of sailing away and now hope to find a friend, or more, to come with me. I never put this in my profile before, about being widowed, and I am not trying to pull at heart strings. My daughter suggested I write that. Anywho. I would love to chat with someone and get to know another who has that same desire of casting off the docklines and heading out to sea. I hope I meet you soon.
