San Diego Sailboat Rigging 


I started my career in the windy San Francisco Bay and it's taken me all over the California coast, Hawaii, Mexico, Guatemala and the Caribbean. I've been lucky enough to have lived aboard most of my adult life and have admired the ocean in her full range from dead calm, light air, to Hurricane Iniki

I've owned several sailboats over the years but currently limit my fleet to only two, an Islander 44' and Luders 16'.  I love helping my fellow sailors maintain and enjoy their boats.
