Howdy Buckaroos !

I am an avid sailor homeported in New Jersey, USA. My name is Gavin and my Facebook page is "atlantic seaventures" for those of you that do the whole facebook thing. Glad to be here among fellow sailors and give me a bit to look about the site!

I'm an exNavy Boatswainsmate/Diver but striving toward my true career goal in life, which is to be a hapless beachbum that hangs out on a sailboat! I have been working on this for some years now and am doing a damn fine job of it!

Ahoy!

Thank you ya ol' snipe! Always great to see fellow Navy people! I didn't retire from the Navy though, I only did 8 years there and got out due to a job offer that was too hard to pass up, did diving work, various contractual work and worked on merchant vessels for a bunch of years after that. Most of my adult life has been on, near or in the water but the first 8 years of a rather interesting ride was in the Navy, Khagan. For the last 5 years or so I have endeavored to slum around and do nothing though!

Glad to have ya' aboard, you'll find the forum full of friendly knowledgeable people always willing to give their opinion.. err.. help you out.

Not to worry, I was a quitter and only did 20 years and 5 days; got tired of floating around on someone else’s boat.

Yes, East coast

Yes, I was on the East coast, on a couple of different ships, did 4 Med deployments total along with a few other various little "gigs" mixed in. It's great to be here and even nicer to see fellow (former) Naval personnel on the site!
