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!
Mostly West Coast of Florida

I am considering a new jib for my B40. To improve light air performance, I may go to 145% or 150% which means I will need to be able to reef more easily as the wind pipes up. Has anyone added adjustable jib sheet tracks?See More
Are you heading to the Bahamas? I am in Green Turtle getting ready to launch and sailing to Riviera Beach to install solar and new batteries, then back to the Bahamas. Hope to catch up to you this year.
I am just changing my shaft…"
I am in the Bahamas and need to replace my cutlass bearing. I have been able to access the right size but it is bronze with rubber interior unlike the Beneteau which is all rubber. Has anyone replaced their bearing with anything other than Beneteau.JohnSee More
