Profile Information

Profile Type:
Loch Lomond, San Rafael, CA
About Me:
USCG Master, Sail & Tow, STCW 95, US Sailing Certified Instructor- through CPM and Navigation. I captain a 51foot wooden Alden designed center cockpit ketch for a non profit- The Pegasus Project- ( and click on Pegasus Project) that takes under privileged and at-risk youth out sailing on San Francisco Bay.
I live aboard on my 1933 50' wooden classic- Charles D Mower designed and built by Hodgden Brothers Boatyard (East Boothbay Maine). I am restoring her. I have taught sailing in San Francisco Bay and also the British Virgin Islands. I will be moving back to the Caribbean in a year or so- to Puerto Rico to start a non-profit school.
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones that you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
--- Mark Twain

" I find thee great thing in this world is not so much where we stand, as in what direction we are moving. To reach the port of heaven, we must sail sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it, but we must sail, and not drift, nor lie at anchor."
Oliver Wendall Holmes

" For the truth is that I already know enough about my fate. The day will come when I will die, so the only matter of consequence before me is what to do with my alotted time. I can remain on shore, paralyzed by fear or I can hoist my sails and dip and soar in the breeze" -

Hello all.The Dolphin 40amp battery charger in my 2011 43 is charging well, EXCEPT the cooling fan is cycling on and off every 20 seconds or so. Volts and amps are correct  although there is red light top and centre flashing red, does not look happy.It seems as if the thermostat controlling the fan is not functioning correctly as the unit is not even warm.I cannot locate the Beneteau supplied manual, any clues as to the fault.Regards,Bilgolabands (Liberte)See More

"Hi Pete. Hope this finds you well. I sold the boat, due to a broken leg, that left  me handicapped.  I want to continue being on Seaknots, for pleasant reminders, and I thought of you. Be in touch, as I follow you in your adventures"
