- Native San Franciscan, and raised near the water, boats and mucking around with them has always a pleasure for me. From my grandfather's three vintage wood Chris-Crafts, to Sunfish, Lazers and Catalina 22s, I have never found a boat I couldn't like. But some I love more than others, and small swift sailboats will always be my favorites. Years spent living in Panama aided and abetted this passion and I yearn for warmer waters than the San Francisco Bay offers!
In addition to sailing I love to cook and am an avid reader. When finances and time have allowed I have also been an equestrian and loved cross country and distance riding.
I have a daughter who is turning 17 and right now I am making sure to enjoy my time with her, because I know it's short and when she is out on her own I will miss her terribly. On the other hand it will give me more time to work on the boat!
Currently we are restoring a classic plastic; a Cal 28 flush deck. As much as I loved the wood boats of my youth I would never own one; I am OVER bright work! Odds are good that if we get to cruising more than days or a week at a time we will graduate up to a larger boat, a multi hull of some sort high on the list of possibilities.
ain't what ya do, it's the way that ya do it...
