About Me:
I am a 66 year old retired museum exhibit designer. I got my Tayana 37 about two years ago and have been trying to shub off since then. I lived in a waterfront house for 22years and sold it to by the boat, but I did by a town house to come back to. I do not now have a wife but I do have two wonderful daughters and three granddaughters. Wile I am not looking for some one, I would not be apposed to having someone along to share the fun and the load... I don’t mind single handing but I like to have a crew. And I am easy to get along with. I don’t like smokers, not that I want to feel that way but I just can’t help it. I do make it appoint to take cair of my health and eat with that in mine.
Current location:
Cobb Island Md. USA
Destinations visited:
Just some on the Chesapeake Bay Rock Hall, St Michaels, Tangier, Crisfield ect.

I am looking forward to seeing more ports in the world. I do want to go down to the BVI and the Bahamas.

i've spent much of my life in museums, michael, but you're the first exhibit designer i've run into. doubtless that is gratifying work - a creative effort that brings great reward to many people. kudos for you.

am, myself, an artist and photographer, but the business end of these pursuits has never interested me. notice you're soloing now though boasting a wonderful family. we have a common interest and are both in the same age bracket;; if you ever need a shipmate for southern climes, tap me. my only sailing experience is as a passenger, but this is something i want to correct. the bvi afford wonderful landfall, with much more varied topography than the bahamas. virgin gorda affords remarkable contrasts and breathtaking sights for so small a land form. there is nothing anywhere like 'the baths,' and north sound on the opposite end is dotted with numerous surrounding islands. the seascapes with my profile were made on virgin gorda.

tortola is rich with diversity, while the smaller jost van dyke, just offshore and looking out and upwards over tortola is a treat, and party island for boaters.

B43 Windlass Drainage

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
