Looking to:
I really want to be sailing. To make my way around the world. Be it with another boat and crew or to find a boat and crew it up for an adventure of a life time.

Being that I'm single, and I know that it's a great life at sea for singles. I would like to find a lady friend with whom I can sail with.

Seeing the world is great, but helping others while traveling is one of the best things anyone can do.

My long term plan is to get a 60-80 schooner that will be used for paid charters and for charitable deliveries of donated item.

I have been wanting to get back to the sea for a few years now. But life circumstances has not allow this to happen. Now that I have a little FREEDOM, I can't afford to get my 80 schooner (Dream) or even my 30-40' sailboat for sailing the world. 

Being Jack-of-Trades guy, I know that I can work and survive, yet in most places (countries) I'm told that you can not work…

"Thanks for all your comments my friends at Seaknots. The halyard has been rerun without passing through the small stainless steel eye, as seen easily in the pic provided by Chris on 17th August. All furling now takes place without any undue effort,…"

"Well at least you’ve narrowed it down to the Genoa. I doubt here’s any issue with the hull or running gear. Nor do I think the slight list you have will have an impact either as many boats have the same based on how full the water and or…"

"In the meanwhile, I performed some sailing tests trying to be as impartial as possible. I was sailing close hauled on the starboard and port side. I used the autopilot steering the boat at 37 degrees to the apparent wind. Apparent wind was 12 to 19…"

"Sounds like your rigging may be in need of tuning????? (Owned B43#19 for 10 years), Sailed from Mass to Tampa to Bahamas with it, great boat, no major issues at all. Boat has flat bottom basically so no need to put rails in water. I found it a very…"

"I’d also do a test using only the main. The more testing you do the more likely you’ll find the problem. I’d also check to see how much the leeward shrouds sag during all the tests. Let us know what you find. Good luck Mike"

"It is only when sailing close-hauled. Unfortunately, this is the only course, where performance really matters. I‘m going to perform two tests: - Sailing with genoa only (track cars on the same position). In this case any (unequal) trim…"

"Our 43 had a shaft drive. Depending on how much water or fuel that was in her she would sometimes have a very small imbalance. Nothing that would cause her to sail unevenly. Do you have the problem on all points of sail? Is it more on any particular…"
