About half of those were multihulls. They have cruised and boated all over WA, CA, TX, and in the Caribbean, Great Lakes, New England, FL ICW, the Gulf, Sea of Cortez, the English Channel, and the Greek Islands.

Sandy’s love for boats and entrepreneurial spirit lead him to shift careers and start his own business selling boats in 2005. Sandy has closed over 350 boat transactions. He has taught Geology at University of Washington Tacoma. Sandy loves to teach and see people expand their horizons. Remember the old adage that if you want to get something done, ask a busy person.
