For the last eleven years Simon has been in the Chandlery business, specializing in engineering needs. He has a deep knowledge of what it takes to keep a vessel up and running. His first involvement in the Yachting industry was a day working job in the South of France painting engine room bilges. Although bilge and tank painting may not be the most glamorous part of the Yaching industry it was the beginning of a long lasting relationship with the industry. From there his first full time crew poosition lead to a dozen years working aboard various yachts in the deck and engineering departments and cruising to some of the less traveled ports of the world. He holds MCA 3000 ton Masters and is also a dive master.

Isvy, artistic, energetic and a little left of center. She keeps us in check. A South Florida native with strong Hispanic ties, she is a great addition to the Longbow Crew. She is also a huge sports fan, American football, basket ball and baseball, all South Florida teams of course. Eventually we may manage to educate here about some of the sports the rest of the world play like rugby and football ( that's soccer to you Isvy).
