- My wife Lori and I lived our Catalina 470 for 7 years. We cruised full-time for 33 months in Mexico and Central America.
We departed San Francisco on September 3, 2010.
In October 2010, we sailed into Mexico where we cruised Pacific side of Mexico for 17 months. This included spending over six months in the Sea of Cortez, traveling within 40 miles of the Colorado river.
In March 2012, we sailed into El Salvador and then worked our way through Nicaragua, Costa Rica and western Panama.
On Nov 8, 2012, we crossed the Panama Canal and cruised eastern Panama, including the San Blas Islands. In February 2013, we headed north to Isla Provedencia, Columbia and Roatan, Honduras.
In April 2013, we sailed to the Yuctan, visiting Puerto Morelos and Isla Mujeres.
In May 2013, we swallowed the anchor in Punta Gorda, Florida
During our cruise through Mexico and Central America we logged over 9500 NM and stopped in over 200 places along the way.
I have about 30 years of boating experience and have owned three Catalina Sailboats, 27', 36' and the 470'.
I hold a USCG 100-Ton Masters License as well as Able Seaman and Lifeboatman certifications.
I am a US Sailing Cruising Instructor as well.
My first paid maritime job was in the Deck Department on the USS Potomac. A former Presidental Yacht and Museum Ship. She sailed about 120 times a year on the San Francisco Bay doing History and Charter Cruises.
I also worked part-time as a Dinning Yacht Captain with HornBlower Yachts and a short stint with Vessel Assist.
I did several deliveries in Northern California as well.
Finally, I taught both sailing and powerboating at Club Natique, Alameda.
