Re: Sail Tortola, BVI and Panama

Art,

Happy to sail with you. I'm ASA104 and some ocean experience. Have owned Catalina 37 and Columbia 27 and sailed on the Chesapeake and some overnights off of California coast. I'm available for up to three months if need be. I'm an architect, real estate developer, chemical manufacturing owner and a healthy 6'-2" 63 years old. I've been looking at 44 and 45' Morgan Catalinas with my wife Sarah for the last year to sail from San Diego...would be a perfect opportunity for time under sail before we buy.

Regards,

Kim Kristoff

Re: Sail Tortola, BVI and Panama

Hi Art,

How has your trip been to date?

Married with three children and 2 grandsons, I am 57 and still working but am trying to ease my way out of the rat race. I've booked off work for February, unpaid, and am looking for an opportunity to sail and share expenses. I've owned two keel boats, the latest a Bayfield 25 with my brother, we sail on Lake Ontario in any weather. I don't have any blue water experience.

I love Latin America and commend to you the ports of Varidaro and Havana Cuba, also Bocas del Toro in Panama and Tampico in Mexico. I've studied up my Spanish and practice whenever I can. You'll find I'm handy on a boat. I pulled out and and re-installed our auxiliary diesel for a rebuild. While it was out I fitted it with an alternator and wired it into the boat so we don't need shore power any more. We also fitted an auto-tiller, do you have one?

I like to cook and I don't smoke or take drugs. The way I have fun on a trip is to look for the good in everyone I meet. People everywhere are open and curious about us if I can just slow down and appreciate them. Women can be a challenge if they see you as a 'sugar daddy' so I try to keep things correct (I just returned from a week cycling in Cuba with my brother).

Please let me know if I might fit into your plans. I can certainly cover expenses and can meet you in any port you choose.
