Dear Shipmates


2006 Island Packet 440. She is my liveaboard vessel. She is a beauty , but build solid as a tank! Just finished a major refit of her. She is ready for the cruise.

I am planning to sail north to Chesapeak bay on June 4th and come back to SC in the fall!

I am engineer and mechanically inclined. If you are interested in learning the boat and its systems, you will learn a lot. I am currently at Johns Island, SC. It is lowlands. I was told that it looks like Netherlands, except much warmer and much more remote. I moored at the private dock that extends a 900ft through marshes to deep water and hides houses in the distance. River is pretty much all to myself. Ebbs and flows of river tides bares and hides the marshes. Beautiful sunsets. Marsh birds and dolphins is frequent sight when not busy working my job or boat projects.

I have two boys 12 and 16 that are visiting me from time to time. My dad and my friends that love sailing also come and stay onboard from time to time.

I am looking for someone energetic with good attitude and good vibe to share my boat with. Preferably on longer terms. Month or more. Help me sail it and fix it. Take care of things while I work.
