Ken’s Personal Pursuits
Ken’s personal pursuits are as varied and exciting as his professional career has been. An avid motorcyclist for many years, Ken helped to set up and teach a motorcycle course in Ohio. He holds a civilian private pilot’s license, and he has published books and articles on topics as diverse as the design and operation of artificial organs, motorcycling, blue water sailing, Hispanic history and the law. He has also published a book of his own poetry and a celestial navigation text for his own sailing school.
In 1999, Ken sailed on his own boat, the Shalom, from Cleveland to Ft. Lauderdale on a solo trip that lasted several months. This exploit inspired another book, The Log of the Shalom, A Sailing Adventure of the Spirit. Back home in Cleveland in 2000, he immediately began planning an even longer voyage by restoring and refitting the Hans Christian 33T sailboat Jade Moon. From 2003 to 2006, Ken sailed the Jade Moon from Cleveland to Puerto la Cruz, Venezuela. Along the way, he called on Hampton, VA, Bermuda, Tortola, several Caribbean islands. On the return trip, he worked his way back up the coast via the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, the Bahamas, and then up the U. S. Eastern Seaboard to the Hudson River and Erie Canal to his longtime home in Beachwood, Ohio. He recently published a memoir called Jade Moonbeams about the trip.
Following his 2006 return home, Ken went back into the law with his daughter, Rachel Kabb-Effron, at the Kabb Law Firm.
