My self-summary
Long distance sailor, engineer, artist, musician, rogue, rascal and
roustabout. I'm the guy your mother should have warned you

I'm non-monogamous. If that is not your cup of tea, then please move on, nothing to see here folks. On the other hand, if you are practiced in the art of safe, sane, honest, respectful, open relationships then read on...
What I’m doing with my life
I live on a great boat. I'm preparing to sail around the world. Or, more specifically, to get on my boat and sail somewhere fun. If we make it completely around the globe, it will be by accident. The plan is to just sail until the money, food and water run out, then work, fish and pray for rain.
I’m really good at
Seeing the big picture. Listening to others. Encouraging those around me. Engineering (in many different forms). Teaching what I know. Admitting what I don't know.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I'm smirking.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Just about anything by (in no particular order) Mark Twain, William Shakespeare, Nick Hornby, J.R.R. Tolkien, Tm Robins, Kenneth Graham, Terry Pratchett, Christopher Moore, Saki (Hector Hugh Munro), Roald Dahl, Arthur Conan Doyle, Issaic Asimov, Tom Wolfe, John Steinbeck, Edgar Allen Poe.

Too many favorites to name them all, but some of my favorites are "Being There", "Princess Bride", "Shakespeare In Love" and "The Incredibles". I'm a screen junkie, (I can resist anything but visual temptation) but I haven't watched commercial TV in thirty years (I can't do TV responsibly) but I do have a screen and watch DVDs. I like to think of it as methadone.

Being a musician tends to make me want to listen to just about anything, (although I tend towards R&B, rock, soul, etc.) but there are a few genres I just don't get, including industrial or really twangy country tunes. I'm also not a big fan of pop-music from the 80's (that was the decade I took the radio out of my car).
Six things I could never do without
Barring the obvious air/food/water/etc., they would probably be cognitive reasoning, major motor skills, learning new things, enlightening companionship, technical challenges, and, of course, my sweetie AnnMarie.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Tropical islands with clear blue water, how to get there, and more importantly, how not to have to come back.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working on my boat, or building/repairing something (usually a boat part) in my shop, reading a book, or having dinner with friends. In fact, for the next few months, I doubt I'll do much of anything else.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can sew a corduroy bodice from scratch, in only a few hours, that would be good enough for you to wear to the Ren Faire. Who knew that clothing construction (i.e. "fabricating" garments) would be so much like engineering? All the same principles apply, except the end users are a lot cuter. :-)
You should message me if
Three or more of the following apply:

- You find me interesting, my lifestyle is compatible with yours, and are, at heart, a decent human being.
- You always wanted to say "Hey Sailor" and mean it.
- You play music or sing, or like hanging with the band.
- You have honed wit, sarcasm and irony to a razor sharp edge.
- You want someone who is more concerned with what you are thinking than what you look like.
- You owe me money, or wish to leave me your vast fortune.
The two of us
