Ben grew up sailing tiny sailboats with his family, usually very slowly due to a chicken s--t mother. Nevertheless, he continued to sail, moving through many boats both owned and chartered. He's a tinkerer who won't be completely satisfied until every system on board has been taken apart and put back together -- a goal which is well underway.
In addition to the mechanics of sailing, Ben is a (very) amateur photographer and an even worse cook. He fools around with software and databases between sailing trips.
All spelling and grammatical errors on this site are Ben's fault.
