Brian has an eclectic mix of hobbies such as metal working, glass bead making, archery, backpacking, camping, cider making, and of course boating. He started boating in his dads 16' runabout fishing out of Port Orchard. He caught the sailing bug 20 years ago with a friend on her little wooden sailboat a 1947 Blanchard Sr. Knockabout. Soon after he found himself on a six day trip sailing from Whidbey Is. to the San Francisco Bay. He is happy boating on anything from a kayak to an aircraft carrier, although he can hardly wait to turn the motor off and set sail. Brian currently holds a USCG 50 Ton Masters with sailing and towing endorsements. He also works as an EMT and has 18 years experience with marine rescue on various boats in the fire department.
