About Me


I'm a friendly, laid back fellow who loves to meet new folks! I have a 30-foot sailboat in a great location in Long Beach, California. If you're not familiar with sailboats, the accommodations are not luxury, but certainly cozy and all of my guests have enjoyed their stay so far! My boat is a 1975 Catalina 30, and she's got a wonderful motor and a good genoa sail for adventures on the water. If I am around to host, I usually end up sailing with guests. A good friend of mine has another boat about 50 meters from mine, which adds to the fun as well when he's around!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I really enjoy hosting guests from around the world. I especially enjoy keeping my French, Spanish, and German up to speed. I also very much enjoy making new friends from around the world and love showing new visitors around Long Beach, and the wildlife (dolphins, seals, etc.) on the ocean!
