No mold used when making me, I had to fashion myself all a mono! I live a pretty simple life. If you're seeking one with a good work ethic, please look elsewhere as I have worked enough for several people! If, however you are interested in a guy with a wonderfully developed play ethic, adventurous, loving, gentle, humorous then I just might be at the head of the class! I'll describe me and you determine if you would like to see if you could put up with me.
OK, I sail, internationally, sometimes single-handed, sometimes with crew. One could say that I am a full time cruiser. Cruising defined as fixing one's boat in exotic locations. I'm pretty laid back, unconventional, and easy going. I'm pretty stable, (good sea legs) I have no problem working from a pitching deck and make sail changes in a timely manner. It's kind of fun, while making a sail change to be standing knee deep in green water one moment and the next be 20 ft. in the air! KEWL! I prefer to experience storms at sea at nite (so I can't see the height of the waves!)
Looking for a sailing partner, someone to sail with me not under me, a first mate, someone who has a equal say in what, when and where we go and do, etc. Someone to go see all the exotic places in the world (by way of water). This would be really great if this were a love interest. (The sailing partner as a one whom I'm totally in love which is the dream part, the sailing is reality).
When I go out with friends, the hostess always seats us at her rowdist table. I don't know every joke in the world-yet! I'm also considered a handful, gentled but not really what one would call tamed. I have grown up but refuse to grow old. I see the world with the same eyes I viewed it with when I was 16.
As far as I can recall, the only time I feel frightened at sea is at night, I will shine a bright lite overboard to attract squid for calamary. Then I think of the stories of the giant squid that are reported to be over 30 feet long! Nervously I will turn the light off and sail away hoping that I didn't attract "THE BIG ONE"! I have sailed the gulf, east coast, Caribbean, Atlantic and Mediterrean. I also enjoy concerts both symphonic and old r&r. I listen to NPR. I love to cook. My glass isn't 1/2 full but sloshing over and amazingly it tastes of sea water! Would like someone to enjoy the sloshing with me! I'm a true free spirit, and probably a gypsy. I don't look for excuses to keep from doing fun things. If it isn't fun, I was absent that day! I eat pretty well, travel real well, pretty much at home anywhere. When one's home is a cruising sailboat, then one could say that I'm a real stay-at-home. I do enjoy a beer or two, seldom more tho. (note to self- remember to put on some clothes before entering the channel!)
I play golf every chance I get occasionally break 80. (I'm a 10 handicap) I like who I am and the life style I have chosen. It's easy to make new friends and I do all the time as I arrive in foreign ports. Guess one has to in my case. I just might be one of the last of the true romantics. When the end comes for me, I want all who view my body,(if it can be found) to have no doubt that I had lived all the life there was out of that one! I want it to be disheaveled, broken, beat up, wore out, bare foot, naked, out of breath, and grinning from ear to ear!
So if it's a passionate guy you're seeking, passionate about living, adventure and love, this is opportunity knocking! Or is it the sound of sails floggin?
Well, the refit is complete, boat is splashed,& provisioned, truck in storage. I'm off on another cruise. May check in from time to time.
Kicked back & sailing to parts unknown.
