Hi, Im new to this forum but I have an important question to ask those experienced in sailing/boating/etc. My new boyfriend, who owns and directs the biggest boat brokerage in the city, has recently been introducing me into the world of boating. It might sound kind of vain to ask such a question but I'm curious to know how much he is earning as I know we will be discussing it at some point and I want to be prepared. All I really know is that his brokerage sell all types of boats from simple boats to mega yachts.
I'm a 41-year-old male. Been traveling since the age of 17 I don't have any sailing experience. But, I'm eager to learn. I'm interested in joining a boat as a crew-member. Preferably something long-term (at least 2 or 3 months, but preferably up to 1 or 2 years) About me : born and raised in Helsinki, Finland. Been traveling since the age of 17. By profession, I'm a Software Engineer. Been doing this for 18 years now. I love nature. I love the outdoors. Most of all, though, I love to travel. I've been to a lot of places (a few times for work, but mostly for fun and sight-seeing). I've been all over North, South, and Central America, Europe, China, India, Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia, Cambodia, Vietnam, South Korean, Singapore, Japan, and Australia. I am also yet to explore some a few other places in Asia, but that's in the works My second-favorite hobby is cooking. International cuisine is my passion. I love to be creative in the kitchen. :=)) My favorite cuisine is Asian. In particular, Thai and Korean (last year, I spent 3 months in Korea, learning how to cook their dishes. I couldn't get enough of it :)) I speak 5 languages: English, French, Russian, Finnish and Spanish.
Hi, trying to start a Yahoo group for history, stories and photos of Vic Carpenter and boats, I now own the Carpenter 28 Bad Attitude and have sailed on Gleek (post fwd, rudder) many years ago, Coffee Grinder and Passing Wind were regular participants in our annual Invitational regatta and Spad was at our marina for a short while. https://ca.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Carpenterboats
