It’s time for a mid-life crisis. After spending most of my life in, on, and around the rivers, bays, and oceans in southeast Georgia it’s time for me to build a sailboat. With the help of my lovely wife Cheryl and daughter Kori, I am planning on building a John Welsford Pathfinder sailboat. By no means am I a woodworker; in fact its always been a weakness of mine. I’m not sure if I know what I am doing so use caution if you choose to use this page as an example. I have no scheduled completion date nor will I rush the project. For me, this is as much about the learning as it is about the sailing.
I served in the U.S. Army for nine years and then went to school to be an aircraft mechanic. I now work for the premier business jet manufacturer in America.
