Originally from California, have sailed up and down the West Coast from Vancouver to the Panama Canal. And up the East Coast to Port Canaveral. Tall blond, that loves sailing, scuba diving, ocean rowing just about any sport on the water. I used to surf but haven't for awhile. Pacific waves are bigger!

Let's see... yeah, i miss the monterey coast.. used to sail out of moss landing.. i liked the remoteness of the whole area.. appreciated the stunning beauty of big sur.. there was so much of monterey county and the nearby areas to explore..
I like apollo beach.. i kept a boat at shell harbor.. we got hit a couple of times by hurricanes where the power was out for a week or so..had to threaten the electric co., swepco, when we were visited by looters.. we threatened to call action 8 news..

as for Mexico.. been all up and down both coasts.. when i was young, it was a great place to go to.. i used to go to school at the army/navy academy in carlsbad and some of us guys would just pop on over the border for a weekend of debauchery.. but, i haven't been there in about 20 years.. it's gotten too insane and dangerous.. will possibly return sometime to the very far south to view the ruins..
since i just moved here to biloxi, ms, i am between boats.. looking for a small trailerable that i can easily tow and launch all along the coast to explore bays, inlets, the small and interesting coastal islands, etc.

"Sounds like you need to give that windlass some TLC. I used to clean and apply a light coating of grease to all the surfaces in and under the gypsy. It remained smooth over a 10 year period. Five of those years were spent cruising full time on the…"
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
