About Jack & Sonya
Jack grew up sailing every weekend on the East Coast, throughout the Chesapeake Bay and Intracoastal Waterway. He trained and worked as a BMW service technician for over 7 years before entering the marine industry. With this background, maintenance and repair is right in his ballpark. In addition, his experience in construction gives him the tools and knowledge needed to refit interiors, install new electronics as well as make the final product look flawless. Jack also has a 50 Ton masters captain’s license with sailing and towing endorsements.
Sonya has been an avid sailor for over 6 years and loves life aboard Gemini, a 42' sailboat. Her craftiness and attention to detail has great effects on the level of perfection when it comes to painting, polishing or retrofitting boats, inside and out.
She has a 50 ton Masters license with sailing endorsement as well as extensive experience in teaching sailing on San Francisco Bay.
Recently, Sonya has expanded her marine skills by working at a local marine chandlery as well as a sail loft in the Bay Area.
Marine canvas & minor sail repairs are also services we can provide within your boat care package!
Together, we are preparing to travel on our 42’ Passport to explore the waters of Mexico and eventually cross the Pacific. In order for this to happen we have made marine living our world, doing most everything ourselves aboard our vessel, including solar panel installation, replacing spreaders and rigging, holding tank and hose refit with complete head remodel as well as modifying storage onboard to better serve our needs.
