I’m a mechanical engineer that’s eternally curious about the way things work. Cars, robots, machinery – you name it, I probably know a thing or two about its inner workings.
But there’s one thing that has completely captivated me – boats.
While I’m not exactly a professional, I’ve been around boats since I was 5 years old. My father was a fisherman, and he would often take me on his trips.
It was on those trips that I was exposed to how boats work and how to take care of them. I became my dad’s right-hand man and learned some trade secrets. It was also on those trips that I fell in love with boats.
Then I turned 18, and I decided to search for a new life elsewhere.
I left town to study mechanical engineering, and I got so caught up with all the amazing modern machines. That time, no one would’ve guessed that I used to be a fisherman. I was so busy, I couldn’t even remember what my past life was like.
But deep within me, I never lost my love for boats.
One day, my friend invited me to check his old boat. He guessed that since I was an engineer, I might be able to help him with the engine.
Boy was I able to help him out.
I didn’t only fix his engine, I fixed his hull, gave his boat a makeover, and got his boat registered. I also left him with more advice he ever hoped to get.
By the end of it, he was speechless. He was shocked by how much I knew and, I’ll admit, I was somewhat surprised myself. I knew where my knowledge came from of course, but I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it.
Word got around that I was some sort of boat whiz, and it wasn’t long before more and more friends were asking me for help and advice.
Yet I didn’t feel burdened at all. Instead, I loved the new attention I was getting. I loved that I could use all my stored up knowledge to help my friends (and friends of friends) with all their boating concerns.
I became the “boat guy”, and soon found myself learning more just to help others. Before I knew it, even strangers would message me for help.
That’s when I decided to create this website.
I created this site to help people – to help you – with your boat problems. That’s why I publish buying guides, how-tos, boat reviews, and more.
Instead of helping one person at a time, I want this website to be the “one-stop-shop” for everyone’s boating concerns. I want people to head straight to Anchor.travel whenever they have a problem.
I’m not quite there yet. This is, after all, just my hobby. But I promise to keep pumping out top-quality articles covering all of your boating concerns.
Because I love boats.
