About Me:
I Started sailing maxi racers in Queensland Australia. I've spent months live aboard on yachts there.

I Just bought a boat in February 2009 and sailed it solo from Melbourne ,FL to Kemah, TX around the FL keys.

I hate it that my little boat goes so slow, I fell in love with 20 to 40 knot boats, but it's mine. If you've got a 80+ ft yacht and looking for crew I'm ready to go worldwide.

Volvo Ocean Racing is porn for me. Southern ocean sailing I gotta do once before I go.

So far I'm enjoying sailing Galveston Bay frequently and loving living aboard everyday. It's a real pleasure lately to be getting to know a small area as I'm usually navigating unfamiliar waters. It's a real chore here as the shoals are everywhere.

Did I mention I was a gourmet chef for 4 years and can cook onboard for 20+ crew on an ongoing basis?

ARRGH!
Current location:
Kemah, TX
Destinations visited:
4 million air miles in the US
8,000 rail miles in OZ
Sailing:
Whitsunday Islands, Queensland Australia
Circumnavigate New Zealand's North Island
Florida's east coast / Bahamas / Keys
Florida's west coast to middle of Texas
Galveston Bay
Looking to:
Sail Galveston Bay to Corpus Christi then onto Grand Cayman and Jamacia then off to Puerto Rico in 2010. Maybe even Costa Rica and a Panama crossing.

Or, I'd dump my boat for a crew position for a trans pacific trip.

New Years Sail

Posted on January 3, 2010 at 1:06am 0 Comments

Met a bloke and his wife the other night on the dock. Did a few hours sailing early this morning 10-15 knot breeze. topping out around .6.7 knots on a Hunter '38. Easy breezy, too easy as they say in the coral sea. A bit chilly, sorta like NZ in summer...

DOLPHN 40 AMP BATTERY CHARGER

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct  although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well. I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
