Andrew West

As a Pacific Northwest native, my first exposure to boating was a family member's 2008 Ocean Alexander 58.  I was enamored with the beauty of that boat and always wanted a boat of my own.  My two poodles (Stanley and Charles) love spending time on the water in our Bayliner 245.  I reside downtown Portland with easy access to many of the local marinas. I frequent the Seattle area often as my parents reside in Gig Harbor, WA.


Boating is my therapy.  Being on the water is almost like a meditative state surrounding myself with the natural beauty of the world around.  My iPhone contains thousands of photos just captured here on the Columbia and Willamette Rivers of the true uniqueness of the Northwest. 


I am member at Portland Yacht Club as well as Olympic Yacht Club (the PNW's only LGBT yacht club).  A large portion of my free time is dedicated to the recovery community in Portland, bettering myself through recovery, and being of service to those that are trying to establish sobriety.
