emails: very long indeed! (Skip this bit, if you're not boaty)
I'm an extremely safety-conscious sailor, FORTUNE is a sturdy, sea-kindly ketch that is very well equipped for blue water cruising, roomy below, and extremely livable for two for extended periods.
I think I'm easy to get along with, hate to argue, quick to forgive, am honest to a fault, share decisions with my partner/crew, and have a good sense of humor. I believe the whole point of distance cruising is to have fun doing the thing we love best, and to enjoy the companionship of a like-minded person.
Please tell me about yourself, your cruising experiences and your familiarity with the Canadian Maritimes. It's rugged country, lots of fog, awesome scenery, history, beautiful coastline, and hospitable people. I can tell you more and point you to some great websites, but want to make sure you know what you'd be getting into. I love it!
Please send photo. Also ask me any questions about your own interests and concerns.
The time frame for my cruise is approximately June 1st to September for the Maritimes, then in the fall, head down the ICW to winter in FL.
Look forward to discussing this further,
Looking good so far, so let's continue - bits have been left out, because this all getting rather long ...
