Re: What are your other passions?

I grew up on boats and hated having to help with chores: paint this, clean that, wash everything. As soon as I grew up, I head out the front door, turned the other way and became a pilot. Then, when I really grew up, I came back.

Current other passions:

Time with my kids/family
Motorcycle touring
Shotgun sports (sporting clays, skeet)
Cooking
Hiking
Winter boat projects

Former passions:

Scuba diving
Skiing

Re: What are your other passions?

Shnool,

Nice, I used to raise Springers and hunt over them. One of the kids is marrying a "horse woman" and the Admiral's twin sisters are, too. I kid them about having pets they can eat! Just kidding. It is a lifestyle. Glad I enjoy access to it without the responsibilities. There isn't enough time for everything. Beautiful animals. Thanks for sharing.

Wow, another fencer? I don't do it anymore (that's how I hurt my knee originally) but used to do a lot of Epee competitions back in the '80s and '90s.

Re: What are your other passions?

Sailing occupies my mind/passions in some capacity most of the time, but my other interests are:

- Family: I have 3 daughters who keep me VERY busy with their own passions.
- Writing: I started writing for fun and as a way to stay sane when I was very young and haven't stopped.
- Photography: Capturing life one scene at a time is therapeutic. Sailing photos are the best!
- Biology: I've always been a science nut and it has mostly worked for me as a profession.
- Web design: A relatively new passion, but one that's been rewarding and challenging.

Re: What are your other passions?

Writing, writing, and writing...

I am actually more passionate about writing than I am sailing or cruising (and I am very passionate about cruising, esp with chldren)!!

Passions first:

Piano (since 2 years old on it... classically trained)
Guitar (since 15 years of age... classical nylon... about 10 guitars total owned)
Rocket Scientist (for real... worked for NASA on Space Shuttle, Kistler 2 Stage Rocket, Pratt & Whitney Aircraft Engines, GE Aircraft Engines, Sikorsky Propulsion Engineer, now Boeing Propulsion Engineer in Everett)
Oil Painting & Photography
Sailing
Italian Car Enthusiast (Ferrari & Fiat), Car shows


ShortCircuit... have you tried Delcamp guitar forum? Might want to join and I'll meet you there... plenty of classical guitar music tabs, sheet music, guitar luthiers, guitar lessons, etc.... great place and I've been a member for a long time...

If I could do my life all over... I'd be a concert pianist and give up everything else, but still have a love of sailing...

Re: What are your other passions?

Sailing wins overall.
Music (guitar especially) is a close second.
And SCUBA.
Since others asked for photos, here's a video I shot in the Bahamas this past fall. I've been trying to get a shark on video for awhile. This was a great dive. Up close and personal.

No money in photography any more. It is tough to earn a living. It is the passion that I have developed when I was very young. With a camera in hand, I am home.

It is probably the style of look I like. It can be also driven by the clients.
