Anyone need help now, anywhere, really?

Ready to go.
I just ask for decent provisioning at minimum.
Single white male no time limit can reach almost anywhere within two days.

I am not sure but maybe if you present your brief sailing CV more people will be willing to consider you.

Good luck!

Re: Anyone need help now, anywhere, really?



Actually human behavior dictates at length that it remains quite relevant. Especially as the human species and population demonstrably continues to devolve, rather than "improve" as such frivolous off-handed comments tend to imply. While perhaps it doesn't matter at sea or in a survival situation, most people, like the poster, simply don't want to create avoidable discomfort for any of the parties involved and so announce things accordingly. It's quite sad that that's the one component of his advertisement that everyone picked up on and chose to attack instead of seeing where he might or might not fit in.

Well you need to make an opinion of whether you can stand being stuck on a boat with someone for a length of time.. He might hop on my boat and i know nothing about him and i get sick of him after a day and make him a cup of "hazardous tea" and he ends up "falling" overboard whilst passed out.. You are more inclined to get a response with as much info about yourself as possible.. Hes looking for the opportunity.. I might have one but if he cant be arsed describing himself then i cant be arsed chasing him.. Plenty of people out there want to come sailing.
Crewseekers websites are crawling with them and they all tell descriptions and their quals/exp etc.

Re: Anyone need help now, anywhere, really?

<<<< seems to apply, since your statement is a very large part of the very point I made. But that's not how the responses were worded. And there's a lot more to what skippers seem to be looking for that they don't post as well. Though this wasn't this person's first post looking for a ship either (I watch to see if there is competition for the route passages I'm seraching for myself) but no one asked about qualifications, they simply attacked him for making a declaratory statement of "white." I'm willing to suggest if he had identified any other way they wouldn't have attacked. They didn't ask for experience or credentials, they simply attacked. Which tells a lot more about them than about him. And proves my point entirely about the current state of the human race's devolution. Political and other.

Re: Anyone need help now, anywhere, really?

C'mon. Stop nonsense.

Single is just a descriptive, as are white and male. What you girls talking about?

Religion is bad and making a religion out of being an atheist is just as bad.

I wish OP good luck finding their ride, and ask them to simply skip over garbage.

PS My boat is a single hull, white, grp doubleender (how perverse). Now pls come and lynch me for not meeting your poorly understood language correctness.

Hip, Hip, Hoorah! Thank you for understanding my English and points Barnakiel! Shame you're not heading to Panama or NZ!

But I second your statement. Completely.

Any ships for OP?

i understand
and it appears we're incompatible with each other just from these communications
no hard feelings
plenty of sailors indeed
plenty of boats indeed too
good luck and be well
