Profile Information

Profile Type:
Sailor
Homeport:
Naples, FL
About Me:
66 yr. old semi-retired photojournalist and long time sailor.
Began sailing, Sunfish, Thistle, and Rhodes Bantams in Michigan.
Moved to Fla. in the late 70's and crewed with several local racers and two Naples to Key West races.

After 20 years of pursuing my photojournalist career, I became interested in sailing again and along with a friend, bought a San Juan 24 to sail in and around Sanibel Island. Nice boat but too small for my future adventures.
I found "Namaste" (she had no name when I purchased her), a '79 Watkins 27 Sloop on Craigs List and sailed her from El Jobean (Charlotte Harbor) to Ft.Myers Beach where she is docked. I couldn't be happier with my boat and my port!




Getting ready to do some cruising around Florida and beyond in my Watkins 27, NAMASTE!
Current location:
SW Florida
Destinations visited:
Mostly West Coast of Florida
Looking to:
Share Adventures and Good Advice with other Florida Sailors.

Wayne replied to Wayne's discussion B40 Holding Tank Plumbing
"Well Bob as luck would have it, my boat does not have the optional macerator pump for holding tank pump out. There is a black switch under the sink but it is for the shower sump drain. Thanks again for the reply."

James Taylor replied to GaryG's discussion Anchor upgrade in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"We use original 44 pound plow that came with boat. Added 100ft 3/8 ht chain in 2010. This setup has proven very reliable and we have not drug since 2010. This set up has held in numerous weather systems with high winds from Martha's Vinyard Ma…"

Mike Brown replied to GaryG's discussion Anchor upgrade in the group Beneteau 40 & 43
"We have a 55lb Rocna on our 43 and it fits just fine, sets quickly 99% of the time and holds like a rock. I use a double line bridle made up of 5/8" 3 strand and a chain gripper plate. On those times where it doesn't set immediately I just…"
