Well I've been living and sailing on Krasna (a 40' S&S ketch) for eight years now. Krasna my boat is in Grenada and I'll be back there soon. Taking some time to visit friends and stuff in the states.
I used to be a photojournalist that covered wars and social issues in South America and Europe then sold my photo agency, bought a boat and am a cruiser now. I wouldn't mind stopping for awhile. I'm getting a bit bored with it and want to try my hand at a garden and and fixing up an old house.
St. Augustine, FL
The US East Coast (Maine to Florida), Bahamas, Belize, Caribbean from Bahamas to Grenada, The Adriatic, Greece, river sailing in Europe, little bits in Calif. and Washington State.
Go cruising again. I've taken the year off and I'm ready to get back on the move again. I haven't decided where I'm going. Virgin Islands, Cuba, Panama Canal to the South Pacific. I'm open to suggestion.
work and anchorages are available in the USVI. Good people with good skills can find jobs, especially since it is "busy season" and owners who are not here want their boats tended to/fixed up and ready to go. Recently False Entrance has been designated a 'no anchoring' area by the local govt. I am not living aboard at this time, going sailing with friends and looking to race this season, which is only through April here.

"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
