About & Contact


Me: 66 year old male, British, living currently in South Carolina close to Lake Murray and Dark Star(the boat). Previously I had lived close by Galveston Bay, Texas for 20+ years. I have had a passion for all things boats since an early age having been an avid reader of a series of books by British author, Arthur Ransome, the best known of which is Swallows and Amazons.

The boats: Dark Star, Bingham 28, cutter rig, long keel not unlike Nancy Blackett in some ways and Shooting Star an 18′ day boat powered by a venerable 115hp Johnson
