About Me:
I am a USCG-licensed 50T Master(Steam, Motor, Sail and towing) and the captain of s/v Mai Tai, a sailing/scuba diving Lagoon catamaran charter boat currently in the Great Lakes. I am hoping to do some world exploring with s/v Mai Tai in the near future! I have a passion for anything sailing especially windsurfing. I've windsurfed in Lake Michigan, Baja, Maui, Bonaire, the Oregon coast and the Gorge. I also work on the Research Vessel Neeskay. I'm very eco-conscious. "I don't know why they call them Environmentalists, they should call them survivalists because the environment will still be there. We just won't be able to live in it!"
I have a passion for music and have played in a variety of different bands, from dub reggae to rock!

I am replacing the panels. My window leaked and the plywood panels thart were viynal covered were rotten. I thought that it was a delaminated hull but it is just paneling glued to the walls. There are globs of a epoxy putty that holds the panels on. In places there is 1/2" of space between the hull and panel. I am adding insulation and had to use spray foam from the can to do the sides. I am going to use 1/2" sheet for the ceiling part and paint it all white. I plan to add LED lights in both white and red.

The 3gm Yanmars came in the boat, so they are starting to show a little age. They are good motors tho. They'll push it about 10 knts wide open, I use just one for cruising speed of around 7 knts.

Got any pics of the project?

Captain Rick,

What design is that wooden boat on your photos? Is it a Herreshoff design? It looked very similar to the boat they are restoring at the museum in Bristol, RI.

I took a wind surf lesson on maui(off maui actually) and it beat me down. I dig yer observation about environmentalist vs survivalist. That is so funny but true. Ye nailed that one.
