Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America;
Experience: 823 ocean miles / 6200 coastal miles
I have been sailing since I was eight years old, and I've been sailing my 36.5 foot Pearson 367 cutter for eight years, coastal and Bahamas. I have also captained charter catamarans in Grenada, BVI, Bahamas, Croatia, Greece, and Australia. My boat, Audrey, was re-powered last year with a Beta 35, and she has new running rigging and all new turnbuckles and new headstay, new radar, new windlass, new headsail furler, new fridge compressor and coldplate, new settee / berth cushions, and the electrical system was completely professionally re-wired by Nat Wilson in Charleston. New house bank (220 amp-hour), all new electronics, and new 130% headsail in 2019. Complete rigging inspection and winches serviced this year. Audrey is a solid boat. I love being out on the ocean. I believe in safety first and always. I have two sons and two grandchildren. I love reading and talking with people.
