About me

The author

I’m Jon Parker. Blogger and Head of Content at Ride the Ducks.

I have a CT-41 ketch sailboat and two dogs. For me, standing in a boat at sea is the most fantastic feeling in the world; and It is how you can feel free with the nature around you.

As a true boat lover, my mission is to bring all boat lovers together and get rid of the stigma of not owning a traditional home.
