Crew Positions: Wanted and Available Postings on CF - Poll

There are lots of crews wanted/avail postings on CF and a lot are interesting to read. But I was wondering how sucessful people are in getting a crew, or a crew getting a boat, based on their posting on CF.

Re: Crew Positions: Wanted and Available Postings on CF - Poll
