Experience: 250 ocean miles / 600 coastal miles
Grow up closed to Adriatic sea and was around small motor boats and sea all my life. For last 4 years owned sailboat Jeanneau Tonic 23. Completed CYA Costal Cruising and Navigation and radio. However, my practical sailing experience is limited on weekend sailing on small body of water. My long term plan is to move and live on a sailboat with my wife and cruise the oceans. Outdoor enthusiast. Love camping, kayaking and canoeing. During winter avid downhill skier. I attended military polytechnic in former Yugoslavia. Some of those military skills are still with me. I'm computer engineer and love playing all mechanical and electronic toys - including fixing them. I'm also private pilot and own my own plane. Plane is home build (not by me) and I perform all annual inspection and maintenance. I'm fairly social and like to fight stress with humour. I love learning as well as teaching.
