Guy was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and then spent the next fifteen years cruising with his parents on their 36’ sailboat. They sailed to various ports on the west coast of North America, the Caribbean Sea and Panama before settling in New Zealand, his mother’s homeland. It was there that he completed a four-and-a-half-year apprenticeship as a machinist, then moved to the United States, his father’s homeland.
Once settled in the U.S., Guy crewed on various yachts cruising the U.S., Bahamas and Caribbean as an engineer and accumulated the necessary sea time to obtain his U.S.C.G. 1,600-ton Ocean Masters license. He served as the 1st Mate aboard Florida Institute of Oceanography’s Research Vessel Suncoaster for five years before joining the staff of the College of Marine Science’s machine shop in 2004.
Guy is married and lives in St. Petersburg. He still enjoys boating and traveling as well as adding to his extensive rum collection. He occasionally reminisces about the days of sailing and calling on interesting ports-of-call but now takes pride in his work and ability as a machinist.
