I've just finished building a
Hawaiian outrigger sailing
canoe from scratch, and am
establishing this site to display
some pics and description of
the process.

Kent Robertson's Family, Work, and Fun
Canoe Builder???
I've dabbled a bit doing a little woodworking over
the years, but never anything I was
really proud of
or wanted to share with friends and family.  Now
I'm hopelessly hooked,    and plan to build more
canoes and other boats during my retirement.
I've been playing for about 15 years now,   put in
countless hours on the range,         taken a
lot of
lessons, and played on many of the best courses
in the country and Ireland.  Unfortunately, I'm not
sure I'll ever get to the point that I consider myself
real golfer.  Three steps forward and two steps
back....Carolyn took it up a few years ago and is
playing more than I do now.  We plan vacations
around it and enjoy playing together.
I'm 33 years into the husband thing, and 30 years into
the Dad thing.  Guess that says something.  Carolyn
and I have gone through a lot together and are finally
feeling like we've arrived.  Looking forward to
retirement, traveling together, enjoying eachother's
company.  Kristy and Eric are
finally on their own,
working on growing up and becoming who they were
meant to be.
I took a sailing class about 10 years ago, and fell
in love with it.  I've been sailing on charter boats
in the Caribbean and Chesapeake Bay several
times now, and would one day like to have my
own boat.  The real dream is to sail around the
world for a few years.
Husband and Father
We found ourselves in Kauai 9 years ago and
bought a condo there in 1999.       We've been
spending the winter there since then, and plan to
spend Winter and Summer there, and Spring
and Fall in North Carolina when I retire.
MD, Internist, then Anesthesiologist
I went to Med School at LSU in New Orleans, did an
Internal Medicine residency in the Charity Hospital
system, and practiced in Montgomery, AL and Baton
Rouge, LA for a few years.              Went back for an
Anesthesiology residency at Mayo Clinic.  Moved to
Hickory, NC in 1985, and have done anesthesia at
Frye Regional Medical Center since then.  I have a
great bunch of partners, and have found my niche in
medicine.  Went part-time a few years ago and will
probably retire in a few more years.  Might do some
locum tenens work in New Zealand when I retire???
