Currently Spanish Springs, NV near Lake Tahoe, Reno/Sparks, but plan is to keep boat in the SF Bay area or nearby Delta.
Busy life but ready to pursue long time dream of finally getting my sea legs back in shape. 28+ years in Navy and Navy Reserves. First WestPac over 20 years ago and got the bug from a friendly sailor while in port (Pago Pago), who took a few of us out on his 30 footer that he was circumnavigating with. Ever since, I've been waiting for my opportunity to get my certs and buy the right boat. Worked hard both in the military and civilian life as an Electronics Tech, Electrician, and now Instrumentation Tech in the oil and gas industry. Ready for the next adventure!
Reno/Sparks, NV area with travel to Nor Cal, WA, ID, OR.
Oahu, Hawaii; Subic Bay, Philippines; Sasabo/Nagasaki/Yokosuka, Japan; Hong Kong; Pattaya Beach/Bangkok, Thailand; Singapore; Sri Lanka; Cochin, India; Muscat, Oman; Abu Dhabi, UAE; Bahrain; Qatar; Kuwait; Darwin/Mackay/Brisbane, Australia; Pago Pago, American Samoa; most of the lower 48 states, USA; Tijuana, Mexico; Dublin, Ireland; Bulgaria.

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:( firstname.lastname@example.org ) for the full details.
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

"Another question, or if you could put me in touch with someone who may have done this.
My new owner of the Freedom 30 was told to have mast taken out ,so as to add items to the top. Has this been done b4?..kinda scares me.what do you think?
"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"
