I came across SailNet while investigating something about boat engine mods. I'm a shipwright and marine installer in San Diego, I've been messing with boats for over 40 years and live aboard my Searunner trimaran (designed by Jim Brown) which I built from scratch over thirty-five years ago. I've cruised a bit, delivered power and sailboats from Seattle to Mexico, crossed the Pacific (on an experimental multihull powered by twin diesel outboards), and held my 100 ton license for six issues. So, it's pretty clear that I'm crazy about boats and continue to learn more about them, which is why I'm here. I look forward to increasing my contacts and experiences with fellow members of SailNet.
