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

We are taking out cat Genny to the Bahamas this year and I am fearful of the beautiful white leatherette salon cushions. If anyone has had cushions made could you please give us a name of the maker. We can make them ourselves if we had the dimensions but would be happy if there was a custom supplier. The boat is in the Abacos and we are in Halifax so we can't go and measure.Many thanks, JohnSee More
