About Me:

I am a Bristol Channel Cutter type of bloke- but I have had to make do with a plastic fantastic trailer-sailer... and dreams. I am considering building or buying something practical and seaworthy and going cruising....I am prepared to crew solo...the harbours are full of dream vacuums that advise otherwise- from the safety of their tired and tethered boats. However, the radiance of feminine company is mostly desirous. (hmm, did I just write that??...touche' Billy Shakespeare!)
I am a good cook when there are limited ingredients and facilities. I sunburn easily, anger slowly, make amends quickly, and I figure that expectations are just unrealised resentments- and I try to act accordingly. Oh...and I don't reside on Hamilton Island as stated...it was just the nearest place to Bowen on the drop-down list; but sounds kinda romantic anyways!

Sailing Experience:

Whatever trouble I could get into with a 20' Boomerang trailersailer :)

In 1977 I first experienced the adrenaline rush of a sailboat surging away with the wind... the lifting ocean swoosh, the fizz and bubbling chaos at the transom... the winds song in the rigging, the deck angled away and the pitching steadied ...it all seemed to tension up together, like the building crescendo of a giant sunny orchestra...ohhh, such a feeling!!....and that was when the plywood Sabot capsized, tumbling its crew of two into the murky bay waters; where I learnt, to my surprise, how easy it was to float with a life vest on!

Sailing Qualifications:

I have commercial Master V 24m and Engineer MED II qualification. I have spent most of my sea time professional fishing in my own motor vessels, not sailing. I am at home in isolated areas. I have happily gone many weeks, single handed, without seeing another vessel. And yes.. I mainly wore clothes, and shaved, and brushed my hair...but one thing I did learn, was that after about three weeks without a mirror, one begins to feel a whole lot better about themselves.
I am learning Spanish so I can secretly swear and curse Australian jet ski riders.
