About Me


I'm living in a house by the river now. Plenty of space. It's an older house that's a bit run down that I am gradually fixing.

Just so you know. .
Pasta with a tin of tomatoes is not a meal.
I like macs gold or green beret. Beers.

love travelling, some of my best friends are people, love music preferably live and guitar occasionally.

I like to go for a sail as often as possible. It's a large (43ft6)(around 13M) boat with two double beds and a single berth.

The aft cabin is usually mine.
I prefer to sail with other people. It's easier and fun ner.
I can't sail every day I have to work sometimes.
I'm keen to do overnight and sometimes longer trips to places like The Mercury Islands. if you want me to know you have read this profile then use the word 'sail' in your message.
I also have a house now. Still like to stay aboard.

things are good, but the best things in life are not necessarily things

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I prefer people who want to stay at least two nights.

have couch, will travel


new to this as of today,23 nov 09. friend is doing it, seems like a good idea.Ok, it's January now and I have had lots of great people stay and had heaps of fun.

Many years later, 2016 in fact it occurs to me that cs may be a good option again. Had a lot of fun when I had the farmhouse and mighty shed. Could be a grand thing in a boat.
If you want me to know you have read this profile and not just mass requested a couch use the word 'sail' in your contact message.
