I just found this site while cruising Noonsite. I am very much interested because I am starting to understand that to chat and help each other is one of the best ways to continue on land what we do at sea.
By way of introducitons,
My name is Andy. Sometimes Captain
2 years ago I rebuilt an old Ferro
- cement sloop
just south of the city of Bangkok. I then sailed it for 8 months covering many of the island chains in the Gulf of Siam and in the process cutting my teeth in the cruising world. I then "solo"ed down the east coast
(without any autopilot) during the Iraq War. Great Stuff.
I am now planning on taking my boat, Wind
Spirit, out into the Indian Ocean
. I am looking at a 9 to 12 month tour of the Northern and Southern Indian Ocean
. I know that I am taking on a large challenge but I feel ready for it.
I am now in the states working as a firefighter putting together money
for the journey as well as buying equipment
and laying out general voyage plans.
I must admit that I am going to throw out a lot of questions but I will also work on answering the questions that I can with the experience I have.
I built a webpage which shows most of my travels thus far. The address is "www.cptandysboat.com" Please check it out if you like.
Hopefully I will be talking with many of you already on this site, sooner than later.
