Story
Introduction
I was born and raised in Maine near the Kennebec River. I first went to sea in 1975 as seaman on a U.S. Coast Guard Cutter. When I got out of the C.G . I sailed with NOAA until I had enough time for an unlimited third mate's license   I obtained my license in 1985 and sailed tugs and coastwise freighters to Alaska for a couple of years and then went deep-sea on various vessels including tankers, containers ships and RO/RO. I have sailed around the world at least a dozen times and have built a skiff.

Now I live in Maine with my family. At work I am captain of a Leader Class PCTC. which trades world wide - primarily Japan, the U.S., Europe and the Middle East.
