About Me:
"Sailors work like horses at sea and spend their money like asses ashore." -Anonymous I love sailing, traveling, meeting people. I am on the US East Coast in Virginia until mid-november 08. At that time, I will sail towards the Bahamas, Cuba, Mexico and will visit the majority of Islands while heading towards Panama. Thereafter, the theres and how, and who are unknown. I am planning to leave alone which ensures I will. Friends may join for legs. I may also take crew to assist whenever possible. Interests include; sailing, diving, hiking, fine wine and liquors, fishing, biking, doing nothing, etc mainly all and none... For additional info please email

Also let me know if you want any weather while you're on your trip.
I have access to lots of good weather data.
Do you have HF radio?

Good morning Jean, how are you? Your trip sounds wonderful, wish I could go...I sailed on schooners for 10 years in Key West, Caribbean, and S. Pacific-I miss it with a passion...Have you been to Staniel or Highborne Cay in the Bahamas? Beautiful places...also Stocking Island in Goergetown-my favorite beach so far...Fair winds and full holds, Cathleen

"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…"
