I'm "STXBoi" on Cruisersforum, AKA Ross. "STX" is the local shorthand for St. Croix, US Virgin Islands
. "Boi" is my willful misspelling of "boy". (OK, I know I haven't been a real boy since there was a Kennedy in the White House. Work with me on this, all right?) LOL
Here's my thumbnail bio.
I'm a single
male living in the US Virgin Islands
. My condo's on St. Croix (STX) and I'm keeping my boat
in a slip on St. Thomas (STT). Why keep the boat
on STT? That's another discussion for another time.
I took Early Retirement
from Federal civil service
and, until Congress decides otherwise, a modest stipend arrives electronically into my checking account each month because I had the good sense to wake up each day the preceding month. So I have a steady income
; a chunk of change in the bank; my monthly bills are negligible; and a fully-found cruising boat. I'm ready to rent out the condo and take off.
Only one thing's missing -- a proper First Mate of the opposite sex. What am I looking for? A broad sense of humor
is my only prerequisite. All else is negotiable.
Summer 2013 we'll island-hop the VI's to develop our "cruising routine". Cruising season starts and we'll head
Down Island, perhaps as far as Trini or Guyana. Next cruising season we'll head
Downwind to Puerto Rico
, the DR (Skip poor Haiti
and the Cayman's. Third season it'll be the coasts of Mexico
and Central America
. After that we'll have to decide if we're ready to transit the Canal and start our circumnavigation
or find something else to keep us busy.

me if you're interested. You don't have to be retired to qualify. As long as you're at a point in your life where you can walk away from what you're doing, I can keep us in beans and rice.
Fair winds and following seas to you.
