Yacht Consultant & Broker
Steve began boating on Okanagan lake at the age of 8 when his uncle rigged up a plywood dinghy with a 3-horse Johnson outboard and an improvised cable-pulley system that made him believe he was driving a speedboat.
After learning to sail on an Aquacat with his grandmother, he spent two summers restoring a dilapidated wooden Melges C Scow with his father. They launched it, went for an extremely exciting sail, and then forgot to put in the drain caps on the bow. A storm blew in and it sank, but an important lesson was learned.
After a succession of small sailboats, children, and slightly larger sailboats, he purchased a 1970 GB 32 woody from Grand Yachts that he loves a little more than is probably reasonable.
After working for twenty-five years as a writer, Steve is now devoted to helping people find the boat that makes getting out on the water the thrill and joy it should be. As far as he’s concerned, if you’re out on a boat you’ve got it made.
