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.

I have also installed solar a few years back so will need to adjust the charging…See More

Hey Gang, I've been spending quite a bit of time taking the old varnish off of my boom and interior cabin. Being based in Alaska, we have big temp swings (-10 to 75 F), and I'm debating just teaking all the wood and holding back on varnishing it. The thought would be that I would just have to apply more teak oil to it every time I went out, but I wouldn't have to deal with the varnish peeling so bad again like it's doing now. Maybe this is just part of the regular upkeep on any boat…See More
