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
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.
