I don't live in NW Indiana, but I have family
in the area (Munster and Schererville), and it's a suitable drive for me from Peoria, IL. I don't have much experience, but I've taken the US Sailing Basic Keelboat certification
and would be comfortable in boats up to at least 32'.
My end goal is to be a full-time cruiser, so I am looking for an opportunity to build time on the water
and experience not just the fun part of sailing, but learn to deal with onboard maintenance
, issues underway as well. I'm also not afraid to sail in less than ideal weather
About me: I'm a 42 year-old male. I grew up in the Chicago suburbs and have lived in Peoria for the past 15 years. I am a Veteran and was a diesel mechanic
in the service
for the better part of my career. Now I work
at Caterpillar doing boring computer work
Would love to talk more and put some miles under the keel
if you're interested.Cheers!
