Specialty computer security, can't say much more unless I shoot you afterwards. But looking forward to more of your posts (identity theft can be fun ) Current boat is a "real" boat, Mason 44. Finally i have a passion of aged rum (but isn't that a requirement for all sailers) and still a pollywog (have not yet sailed across the equator).
If you want any more info, you will have to share a shot of rum face to face.

I'm an electrical engineer working for a small, rather specialist, company. Been sailing all my life, starting in Sabots, then crewing for my Dad on his racing yachts, then Impulse dinghy and now.. a Hartley! Excellent boats.

I haven't sailed across the equator per se, but I have cruised across it on the world's oldest active passenger vessel (to be forcibly retired with all the others in 2010 )- does that count?

My first boat was a powerboat. It was a pram, which I built myself with lots of help from my best friend. He still is my best friend, BTW ..... It was painted battleship grey, which I hated, but the paint was "on sale" for $.50 a gallon. We had a lot of fun on that boat in the Passaic river.

I have been a winemaker for over 25 years and have been forced to retired due to my health. Planning on starting to cruise later this year for as long as I can. With the boat paid for and well equipped it should be cheaper and a hell of a lot more fun, then living in an apartment.

Bingo. Lovely ship.

Being half-rivetted and half-welded due to all the patch-ups she's had over the years she now has an odd cork-screwing kind of motion in a heavy sea. I'm looking forward to getting to see her again on her last visit to Australia in a few months.

Apparently the latest SOLAS regulations prevent anything much older than the 1960's leaving port after 2010 regardless of how much money has been spent on safety upgrades, hence the 'Doulos', the hospital-ship 'Anastasis', and cactus-knows how many other fine examples of shipping history are all headed for the ship-breakers or to be parked as floating hotels somewhere all because of some idiot in a regulatory body somewhere decided they are unsafe ...but that's a topic for another thread.
