Ref 48745

Nationality: United States
Currently based in: Portland OR, United States
Looking for: Caribbean; Central & North America;
Experience: 60 ocean miles / 300 coastal miles
I am a relatively new sailor who figured out that the place I love most is on the water- I have my ASA certifications 101,103,104,105,106. I am getting open water dive certified in Jan-Mar 2022. I am looking for the chance to sail, build miles, gain experience, see how others do it, and most of all to accept that there is a ton I still don't know. I am a friendly, easy going guy with a very high mechanical aptitude. I am very computer literate and I am also good at just plain old figuring things out. I have moderate cooking skills, and decent navigation skills.
Smoking: non-smoker
Relationship status: married
Dietary requirements: Allergy to Flounder, Halibut and Sole. Prefer to not eat coconut-
