I started sailing in the 50's with my parents, by my teens I was crewing on my dad's old Hinckley B40 with he and his friends on long trips and races - Marion to Hamilton was my favorite. I didn't have or need my own boat until the late 70's when I bought a Columbia 28.

s/v Paloma, Bristol 29.9, #141
Slipped in Bahia Marina, easy access to Corpus Christi Bay and the Gulf of Mexico.
