“I am ASA 101 and 103 certified and have logged close to 200 hours sailing in and around the San Francisco Bay. I recently completed a 3 day, 3 night sail in the Chesapeake Bay. I grew up around boats and have spent many summer days on runabouts waterskiing, wakeboarding and generally enjoying the water! ”
Aboard since 2014
From Oakland, CA
Mark handled the larger boat quite well. Our Erickson 34 is 34.10 on deck with a wide beam giving her the feel of a 36-38' vessel. Mark and his first mate handled her as a duo. He reported their guests got into the spirit of sailing and participated when the wind was up in the afternoon. Alas a winch handle was lost during the more fun part of the sail and not recovered. Mark had ordered a replacement from West Marine for delivery directly to us, the very next day.
It was great to see Mark again using the same boat. The pre-cruise went faster and he again did a great job of taking out his family and friends. They were all still smiling at the conclusion of the charter. Mark went back after his friends left for home to the boat to do a bit of extra work to ensure the boat was cleaned for the next sailor. Very much appreciated.
