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.

"John, the eye the spinaker halyard runs through is there to reduce stress at the top of the mast. If you never fly a chute then you’d be fine threading it from the sheave at the masthead. If you do hoist a chute then from what I’ve been…"

"Good day gang, I have decided to use a heavier line as Mike suggested for the topping lift to be comfortable going to the top of the mast.  Today I ran across another 43 in Green turtle and he told me he uses his spinnaker halyard.  When I…"
