I'm a teacher and retiring NLT May 2013 to go cruising and although not exactly looking for a job or crewing
, the right boat and sailing area could change that.
I think you should be able to find someone, but most will have little experience as they will tend to be very young with little landlocked strings attached. Not sure what duties you would be looking for, but I think you could get someone for $500 a month, maybe less. As mentioned young unemployed teachers abound, but with no experience you could probably do just as well yourself.
You may be able to attract a single
or couple retiring, an example would be my girlfriend and me, she a history/english/reading specialist and I am a math/science(physics and meteorology) teacher, both 6-12 qualified. Again, we would consider doing something like this for little or no money
for the right boat and the right cruising area.
Oh, btw--welcome aboard.
