Spending my days motorcycle touring, sailing, and family.
Sittin on my butt!
Delivery sailing and assisting owners sailing since retirement.
I've been lucky enough to have sailed both full coasts of the US and Mexico, the Great Lakes, entire ICW, Bahamas, PR, VI's, Vancouver Is, Horta, Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, four trans-Ats, one transPac.
A Panama Canal transit and sailing the South Pacific is high on my "hit list" of places I'd like to sail.
Spend the rest of my time between sailing 'n riding the scoot.

The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More
