Singlehanded cruiser/liveaboard nomadic wanderer. Work onboard the vessel to earn a living (I'm not retired or rich!) Am an ABYC cert. Marine Electrical Tech. & mechanic.

My "baby" is a Bayfield cutter, 31', yellow hull with Gozzard's trademark clipper ship's bow. Her name is Angel & have been with her for 10 years now and don't plan on changing that! I love her and of the boats I've sailed, she just fits me so well. Before her, sailed a trimaran, then a cruising catamaran. Started cruising life by crewing on friend's boats as a youth. (grew up on boats in a cruising family on water, so that is what's most comfortable)
The adventrues of s/v ANGEL (the singlehanded "girl" sailboat) and her companion cruising vessel, s/v DEFIANT (the singlehanded "boy" sailboat)- and lately, a mutual best friend Neil & s/v ASTRID, can be read in Southwinds Magazine or viewed online and freely downloaded from Southwindsmagazine.com
Other Angel and Defiant stories can be seen in past issues of Cruising World, SAIL, Latitudes and Attitudes and Good Old Boat magazines.
