Well you certainly have the experience so that's not going to be an issue (although maybe don't mention the part about hitting the bridge
). From my experience in deliveries and from a friend of mine that used to manage a charter
operation in Tortola, reliability
is the big one. Even if you have to start out as third assistant head
scrubber, be there, show up on time, don't be late for your watch, all that. Having a reliable worker and one that stuck around (boaters seem to sail off into the sunset on a regular basis) seemed to be one of the biggest complaints in the business. After that, it's just patience, hard work, good skills and maybe a little luck. Being in the right place at the right time never hurt.
Of course there's the obvious like being clean and sober, don't punch out the boss/owner/customer and don't run into bridges too often.
