Re: Partner wanted, shipmate

How does one qualify to be your partner?
Bring $10,000, or $20,000 to finish your boat and go for a sail, and you still own the boat and the partner goes goodbye at the next port?

Please be spcific, as in laying out a detailed plan if you want to attract investors, partners, whatever.
Otherwise it sounds like a scam.

Re: Partner wanted, shipmate

No scam here.
First applicant gets approved based on mutual exchange of information and good health is essential.
No money is exchanged before hand. if applicant is serious we would meet up at the boat yard and review everything that needs to be done to the boat and yes looking at between 10 to 20 k for remaining work.
If not able to meet at the boat because of your present location,we can reach a mutual understanding on how to proceed. Share information.
No funds are needed up front as this is for real and no way a SCAM.

Not any applicant will qualify. Anyone out there who can offer suggestions how this should be arranged to benifit both parties, please comment.
Bottom line is what i have previously written, NEED PARTNER, SHIPMATES.
Have time to work out the agreement and get into specific details of remaining work to be completed. Essential that serious applicants that come foreword be open and honest.
Scams work both ways. Again no money up front is wanted or being asked for.
Want only what i have asked for in my post and as outlined here in this clarification.
And no one gets dumped after acceptance. Lets make sure there is no misunderstandings.

This is an honest and serious request for shipmates who can qualify and accept me as i am. We will get to know each other first.
All member suggestions most welcome.
Please note i have been on this forum for a long
All journeys start with the first step.
Hope this is request for your help and support works.

Re: Partner wanted, shipmate

I'm curious what make of vessel it is.
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming: Wow - what a ride!"
