Introducing myself Malcolm aka k6uaw (ham call)

I am hoping to find a new first mate here.


My name is Malcolm, My wife (Arlene) and I have some 45 years in sailing together. We have owned these boats in this order.. Cal 20, Cal 25. Ericson 27, Catalina 30, Crealock 37. Jeanneau 43DS. We have also owned a Grand Banks 36 and an Island Gypsy 40 trawler. Arlene and I used to sail the So Cal islands (from San Clements Is. to San Miguel is.) Favorite is Santa Cruz Is. 2 weeks at sea, two weeks home all summer for years.

In 2014 my Arlene and wonderful first mate came down with Alzheimers. I sold our43DS (berthed in Ventura, CA). We moved and bought a lake home In Hot Springs Village, Arkansas. I cared for Arlene at home, sadly my mate of many decades passed on Nov 3, 2017. 9 months ago and I still cry for her daily!


I am seeking a non smoking lady 50 - 65 with sailing skills/knowledge (and sailing lust) to continue with. As a declaration I have never been arrested and last traffic ticket was 1989. I have a carry License I submit as proof of my clear background. Since I currently do not own a cruising boat we can plan this together. I do have a 19 ft sea ray ski boat in my boathouse Behind my home on Lake Balboa. There is also a 40' swimming pool in the back yard to cool in in summer.

I do not smoke and have NEVER used drugs of any kind. I do love a few cool ones on a hot day. I avidly love to swim. I miss having someone to swim with. and drink wine with.

I love classical music in all forms including opera, chamber, concertos. from Baroque thru say 1875. Love piano trios, esp Schubert, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and Mendelssohn. I miss having someone to attend concerts with.


I am an electronics engineer. A business I started in 1983 allowed me to retire quite early in 2001..


Is there a salty lady out there that could put up with sailing with me ?

Well Malcolm. I'm very sorry that you lost your beloved wife. Welcome to SailNet. I'm not exactly sure that you will find what you're looking for on this forum but hey, can't hurt to try.

I am going to move this thread to the appropriate forum. Best of luck.

I'm sorry Malcolm. I can read your PM to me but the site is still messed up and I cannot reply.
