SPOT ADVENTURE LOGS TO KEEP YOU INFORMED
Today I have "SPOT" personal satellite tracker that will track the boat's progress and updates the position every 10 minutes, 24/7. I generally use "SPOT ADVENTURE" on my deliveries so the owner knows where the boat is at all times, when shes begins the delivery, where she is during the delivery and when she is in port - you and your family/friends will know where the boat is. After the trip ends I convert the "SPOT ADVENTURE TRACK" into a historical trip with pictures coorsponding to the location during the delivery. The trip and experience becomes a "SPOT ADVENTURE LOG" to view on your iphone, ipad, PC or other mobil device. Here is an example of a SPOT ADVENTURE LOG of the TransPac race from Los Angeles to Hawaii and my delivery back to Marina Del Rey in 2011.

I have made several dozen trips up and down the entire west coast of the US. I have made many round trips to San Francisco Santa Barbara, Long Beach, Newport and San Diego. I have made extended deliveries from the following locations; Ensenada, Cabo, La Paz, Puerto Vallarta and the North and South Pacific. I am familiar with the procedures required to clear customs quickly including San Diego, Mexico and several North and South Pacific cruising grounds. No delivery is too short or too long for hire.
I’m an especially well seasoned sailor in both north and south directions of Baja California as well as Mainland Mexico. As of November, 2011, I have over 100,000 verifiable international sea miles experience. I am very proud of those miles and what they represent in terms of safe and prudent sailing. In August of this year I will have added another 7,500 miles between 2 Mexico return deliveries and racing the 2011 TransPac race to Hawaii as well as delivering Between The Sheets home to Marina Del Rey. Having raced and cruised up and down Baja since my first time in 1971, I consider Mexico my own backyard.
In the Pacific I have 6 Trans Pacific crossings to Hawaii and back. I am very familiar with the weather and courses to plot as it relates to trans pacific crossings. I have also done deliveries from California to Auckland, Auckland to Bora Bora, Grenada to Ensenada via the Panama Canal, Marina Del Rey to Anacortes, Wa. On the east coast I have done deliveries from Miami north thru the Intracostal Waterway and from Miami to Cascais, Portugal via the Azores.
