Hey guys! I was approved a year ago, but then got busy selling things and moving back to SoCal from SoFla. I am 44yo male, 6'1", average body, curly light brown hair and blue eyes.

My father bought me a sabot for my 10th birthday and that is when the bug bit me. I went to a Laser and then at 17 I sold my GTI and bought an Ericson 23 and a Moped. Mom didn't like the moped idea, so they bought me another car. When I start college (only 20 miles away) my parents offered to rent me an apartment. I took the money and took over a Mariner 40 Ketch (woody) and liveaboard. Since then I have had more than a few boats and a few houses. I lost my Mull 40' in Wilma when a 118' Charter Barge broke free and squashed my boat (luckly I was not aboard). I moved to a house and bought a Santa Cruz 27' to sail (need that fix) and sold her in 2009. I moved back to Huntington Beach, CA (where I am from) and now have mom living with me. My father has Alzheimers ( in a home now)and i am his guardian and I am taking care of mom. Currently looking for a small cruiser, more than likely a Nor'Sea 27. Not to liveaboard, but to escape for 2-7 days in the Channel Islands. It is great to be out of the SoFla Heat, but do miss some great friends.



I have never been married, although I have been engaged more than a few times, but they never got the sailing thing. Looking for a LTR with someone that wants to go sailing for more than a few years and see and experience life.

I live 3 blocks from the Beach, about a 10min walk to the Huntington Beach Pier (I have to live at least close to the water). When I am old and grey i would like to build a house on the Big island, where I once lived and visit often.

Thanks for sharing . Welcome to the SSSSM group. Those are wonderful plans, have you ever been sailing off the coast of Australia? or plan to? Just wondering..

Yep. I gathered from the comment conversations link that the photo is not of zooks.

Never been to Oz, but have a good friend in Taz and Surfers Paradise. When I go, I want to go and see it all and surf the good breaks!

Thanks Salty Monkey, I looked at that one. It is a bit pricey, the one in Hawaii can be had for $20k and I can do more than a few things with $39k.......When I go sailing I want 40'-52' and with more performance.

I had a friend with a Westsail 32' that did Panama to the Marquesas last year....51 days! He sold the boat and bought a Farr 40.....LOL!

But right now I want to be cruising, and living aboard, so where better to hang my help wanted sign than here!

Not fitting in is the new fitting in

Maybe i'll just take my boat fund and fly around taking each of you to lunch instead of buying a boat.
