avid sailor: either cruising or racing. Lived aboard some years ago and would do it again. Live in the warm weather year round, spend a month or so on Cape Cod each year. Have a number of interests besides sailing, as long as they are in warm weather. I am a self employed professional so I have the means and the time to sail.
Lived aboard RI, NY, FL and USVI. Regattas throughout New England and the Caribbean, particularly Antigua.
Spend more time sailing down island, south of Antigua preferably as I have not seen those islands yet.

"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"
Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year. The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
