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.
