Logical Lizard


Welcome to our web site. We are avid sailors. We have a J/105 sailboat, hull number 638, named Twisted Lizard.  We sail Twisted Lizard on Lake Michigan off the Chicago lakefront and on the Gulf of Mexico off of Marco Island.  Twisted is currently berthed at slip D40 in Montrose Harbor. 

We are members of the Chicago Corinthian Yacht Club.  We were  members of the Burnham Park Yacht Club from 1992 through 2001 and the St. Thomas Yacht Club from 2001 through 2008.  

We bought the J/105, Twisted Lizard in 2004 and race it in 2005 and 2006.  We raced Key West in 2006, the J/105 North Americans in Toronto in 2005, the Chicago to Mackinac race in 2005, the Chicago NOODs in 2005 and 2006,  the Chicago Verve in 2005, and the Chicago Colors Regatta.  Due to a leg injury, we no longer race Twisted Lizard.  Our racing has been limited to Wednesday night Beer Can races on Terry and Nanci Koller's boat, Coyote.

We had a Mumm 30 sailboat, also named Twisted Lizard.  We could trailer the Mumm 30 so we have raced in Annapolis, Atlantic City, Key West, Hilton Head, and Harbor Springs.  In the Caribbean, we have raced in Puerto Rico, St. Thomas, Tortola, Sint Maarten, and Antigua. 

Our previous sailboats were a J33, Lake Lizard and a Merit 25, Kenobi.

Twisted Lizard, a 2004 J/105 is for sale.

Logical Lizard was the name of our 56 ft Viking Sport Cruiser.  The Viking Sport Cruiser is an import of the Princess line in Europe.  Our previous powerboat was a Californian 45 Motoryacht, Lazy Lizard
