I'm a newbie
to this forum. Although I have already started posting
to some of the threads. Such great discussions I couldn't resist.
I have lived in the caribbean
for 22 years. I originaly moved here for the sailing. Operated charter
yachts for 14 of those years. Finally in 2000 was burned out on 100 hour weeks and hurricanes and quit. Went back into photography
(my orginal profession) and sold
my engineless 22' Falmouth cutter
that I owned/lived aboard for 16 years. Went totally ashore. But recently started jonesing for another boat
. Purchased a 28' Bristol Channel Cutter
(my dream boat
for the last 35 years). I live aboard
her now in the harbor for Charlotte Amalie. Her name is Shanti and if anyone ever is out this way stop by and say hi!
I look forward to helping out with what I've learned over the years. My background and point of view comes from a heavy dose of traditional balanced by a careful evaluation of the modern. I know that there is no "one size fits all".
But after 8 years ashore there have been some new ideas and technologies I would like to catch up on. I have also forgotten some stuff. I don't have Alzheimer's, just partimers. That is how I found this forum. Everytime I went to research
something I kept coming up with posts on this forum. This site is a GREAT resource and the company looks pretty good too!
Looking forward to interaction.
