Zeiggy is a 35 foot Sloop rig outfitted for liveaboard in comfort. I purchased Zeiggy 20 years ago and I have slowly made changes to make living aboard more comfortable. But it is still a 35 foot boat, which means it is easy to handle and fun to sail.
In terms of a sailing companion, I am looking for an independent, intelligent, 'feisty' maiden who wants to share in my adventures. I am reasonably intelligent and enjoy a brisk sparkling discussion. I fear no man, and only a few women. Just kidding.
I am not looking for a companion who wants to lay on the deck soaking up the sun and paying her way on her back in the cabin. That is available cheaply in several places, but rather someone who wants to listen to what I have to share and is willing to teach me the things I have missed. Someone who will tell me if I misspelled "feisty".
I was studying Spanish and French, (both of which I speak with barnyard quality) and I taught courses on electronics, computers, CAD, Boat electrical systems and a few others. I am a licensed aircraft pilot, certified with 3 diving certificates, and an experience captain.
I taught dancing for while I was in college and I ran a cooking/wine school, which means I forgotten "how to do" some fun things. I don't smoke and drink 12 yr old scotch. I like all types of music, but my favorite performers are: Tellemann, Bee Gees, Bach, Moody Blues, Meat Loaf, Celine, Van Morrison. I played piano when I was 4 yrs old, but have forgotten all of it and played violin with my daughter when she was growing up.
I am an experienced engineer (electrical but not very civil!) and I owned plastic and machining companies in the past, so mechanical and electrical systems on the boat are easy for me to maintain.
When I was 30 years old, I made a plan to retire when I was 50. I missed it my one month; I was one month early.
So, look at the pictures, look at the boat! (But don't miss looking at the other captains)
I sailed "single handed" to Grenada in 2005 and returned to the US in March 2006. After a few months in Naples, FL, moved Ft Myers to wait out some of the hurricane season.
Nov 2006 I put the boat on the hard in Florida and spent three months in Argentina and the passed the summer on the Cote de Azur in France. I spent 2008 in Cusco and Huanchaco Peru and 2009 in Cadiz, Spain and Antwerp, Belgium.
Currently I am in Dinner Key making some repairs and planning my summer.
If you are interested in sailing with me, we would spend a week or two sail in the Florida Keys. Probably south from Miami towards Key West. This would give us a chance to see if we can live in a confined space together. And if either of us has a problem we can quickly get ashore and find other arrangements. We would probaly stop at marinas and moorings so you could see the area, (if interested)
This gives us an escape valve in case we dont mix. Also, any guest on board has a private cabin, but the TV and the movies are in my cabin, but you can still watch them from the main salon, sorry. You should bring a cell phone and keep in easy contact with your friends. It is important for me that you feel relaxed and comfortable, because if you are a loony, you will drive me crazy. You will also be expected to pay half the expenses, which include fuel, food and dockage or mooring fees. If you pay a little you should feel you have a little say in where we go.
NO LOCO's need apply.
I must go down to the sea again,
to the lonely sea and sky;
And all I ask is a tall ship,
and a star to steer her by.
