Profile Information

Profile Type:
Sailor
Homeport:
In transit
About Me:
Live-aboard, traveling sailor. Freelance writer for variety of publications including Southwinds Magazine, The Mariner Magazine, Windcheck Magazine and Spinsheet Magazine. Partial to steel monohulls. Currently aboard a steel, gaff-rigged Tahiti Ketch. Author of the new sailing cookbook, "Gourmet Underway," a 460-page entry into the world of fine dining while at sea. No other sailor's cookbook quite like it. See the website, www.gourmetunderway.com for more.
Current location:
Anchored out on the St. Johns River in northeast Florida.
Destinations visited:
Too many to name. All of the Bahamas, greater Caribbean, Jamaica, both Atlantic and Pacific sides of Central and South America, and north as far as San Francisco. Chartered and delivered boats for a number of years based in the Panama Canal area.
Looking to:
Continuing to sail. Re-powered my Tahiti Rover with a new Westerbeke last year. Just ordered a gaff topsail, and shopping for a 3/4 oz. drifter. Added a Fortress FX16 to the ground tackle inventory, making it 5 hooks. Thinking maybe of crossing the pond and visiting the Azores. Then again, maybe just a modest gunkholer in the Bahamas. Who knows? I've found it's best to let the breeze decide.

Yes she did. She also recruited me to a small business owners face book kind of thing and I haven't mentioned to any one at seaknots what I do for a living. I do, by the way, own a Marine Canvas business. That's a little spookey. and her picture doesn't look like any gal sailors I know!! Capt. Andy

It looks like Paige signed up for groups on ning.com (like Sea Knots), and is using that for recruiting to her group sta.rtup.biz, which is also a ning.com group. It's probably not a real person. I suspect ning will boot paige when they get around to it. It's unethical, immoral, and possibly fattening, but I don't think it's dangerous. All the same, I won't be signing up for sta.rtup.biz.

In my previous comment I said it looked like a Monitor, but on closer inspection it looks like an Aires...

Awsome, Robbie. We only spent 2 1/2 weeks in the Azores and only got to see Faial and Pico but we had a wonderful time. The next time I'm in Lisbon, I'll definitely check out your cannon?

The Maramu is a 46 foot ketch built by Amel of France, one of the largest builders in Europe. Among the features that appealed to us are a deep center cockpit, stand up engine room, and hard dodger /bimini with the helm directly below and out of the weather. The refit is costing way more than we ever thought possible -- when does it not? -- but she'll be a new boat when we're done with her. I put up a Facebook site with some pictures and if you're interested, you can view them via the following links:

I enjoyed the pix of your Tahiti Rover. She looks like a well found vessel. Is that a Monitor windvane I see off her stern? Our Monitor saved our bacon on our crossing when the autopilot packed it in the first night out of Bermuda. The new boat is a center cockpit so I'm still mulling over how to set up a servo pendulum windvane.

Hey, Robbie.

After reading your profile's "Looking to:" I'd definitely recommend heading to the Azores. My favorite landfall. I've posted a few pix of the marina in Horta.

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
