I am not looking for companionship! I would prefer a couple or a female (or gay man). I am looking at buying a boat myself and want to get some experience from someone experienced prior. I haven't flown in years, but have may hours as a private pilot, so I get it a bit. I lived on a yacht on the lake for a year. My background is in homebuilding so I am as handy as a 47 year old can be. I have never steered away form hard work, but I am not looking at killing myself on a boat. I have been told I am an awesome cook. I am extremely clean and don't tolerate filth. I appreciate others points of views, and ask only in return to respect my views as well if they are different. There is way too much polarization. I am retired now which does not work well for me. So I am looking at doing things I have always dreamed of and sailing is certainly top of the list.
