Have wanted to sail since I was a little girl. Had a row boat as a teen and my happiest hours were spent on the water. Love Lake Michigan and spent some time last summer sailing with a female friend on a Pierson 32. I am 56, single, an artist, can cook! Mechanical mind... Don't get sea-sick that I know of!
Have traveled the world, but not on a sailboat, unfortunately! Did cruise the Bosporus, tho!
Want to find someone who has a nice sailboat and likes to sail, would like an extra hand and some company on Lake Michigan. I've only been on a Pierson and want to do some comparisons. I can be there in 30 minutes, and am free most Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with a little advance warning.

Doing some maintenance on my B43 Quick Antares windlass this year. After removing the windlass, I knew instantly that I should have been doing this at least ever other year. The windlass was preforming weak and slow with a noise which made me think the motor brushes or a bearing was going out, thus the reason for removing it.What I found upon removal was a tremendous amount of salt and sand on the top part of the gearbox, literally packed in. Upon cleaning everything up, luckily all bearings…See More
