Career sailor.
Lots of inshore & offshore racing & passagemaking.
13 times round trips to Bermuda, mostly Newport-Bermuda-Annapolis, Marion-Bermuda-Annapolis but also Annapolis-Bermuda-Antigua & back & Annapolis-Bermuda-Annapolis.
Lots of time in Antigua, Barbados & the Grenadines during the glory days.
A couple years in the Med & 2 summers racing in England 1 summer on the Baltic out of Kiel..Lived in Spain for 2 years. Been racing in France 3 times, visited France two other times, therefore I enjoy learning Spanish, French, Portugues and dabble in Italian & Catalan. Some study in Japanese & Russian as I have friends from those countries. Some of my students are taking Arabic and Chinese, so I try to greet them in those languages (badly...) Basically, the study of language is a concept in understanding people, their culture, their perspective...
Now Coaching & racing full time.
80% of my time is prepping boats in the boatyard & managing a fleet of offshore boats.
Occasionally a nice long delivery.
Married with teenage boys & grown daughter with one 4 year old.
I guess that makes me a grandfather???
For fun we have a Hobie 18, and ski/snowboard in the winter.
Fishing a lot.
Son's also play guitar, I plink...

Finally, I'm ready to continue my sailing skills...learning all the time.

Where have you sailed lately?

Have a great summer.

Hey Pete, thanks for the contact...now that your season is coming to an end, why don't you and your wife pick me up on my Vacation to Myrtle Beach offer, as seen in the female Sailors Group? I can put you up in my home.. our Season is all year here. Has been raining a lot lately. You can follow my weather on my page.

I need working the sails instruction.

Wow, time flies. Sorry I haven't checked in with SeaKnots lately. Been super busy with racing & training. Another big project was the rebuilding of our Farr 30 (Mumm 30) chainplates. Seems Carol Marine, the builder of most of the Farr 30's, read the design drawings wrong and drilled the access hole for the chainplates on the wrong side of the box frame thus weakening the structure. I've modified the chainplate with a 20 hr, $200 material repair that I suspect most Farr 30's will need someday. The new chainplate structure worked perfectly with 25 knots true wind racing this weekend.

The verdict is in, Bismark Dinius found not guilty in the absurd false accusation murder case of the fatal boating crash that caused the death of Lynn Thorton due to neglegent operation of a high speed powerboat by Russel Purdock.

Seeping leak near prop shaft

I have a seeping type leak near where the shaft exits my B43 behind the engine. The leak is not coming from the volvo seal, it puddles underneath the shaft and fills this area with saltwater after about two days. I have read a few posts on other sites about water leaking in from where the shaft exits the hull. Does anyone have any info on this. Going to call Beneteau tomorrow.Thanks DaveSee More
