Canadian, 43, Looking to Crew

I'm interested in any crew opportunities to brush up and learn a lot more in preparation for getting my own boat.

I was in the Canadian Navy but that was over 20 years ago. I was a boatswain on a destroyer called the Iroquois. I have a lot of experience on the water after the Navy, but other than the bit of naval training I had on smaller sailboats, most of my experience is with power boats.

I am however, 43, VERY fit (gym 4-5x/week), a non smoker, rarely drink, a good swimmer, diving experience, great fisherman, great cook, photographer/cinematographer with own gear, good with tools, and sailing will come back quickly. Trained in search and rescue, and many other things that might come in handy...

I'm also in the midst of shopping for a boat myself, have sold everything and am in temporary housing so when I find something I can split immediately. My plan was to buy something and sail around in coastal waters a while until I was comfortable enough to do the milk run on my own. This might be a good way to go too.

I can fly out on a moments notice. Numerous references available.

With highest regards,

Jon Charron

Hi,

I am looking for a crew member to join me sailing Florida Keys/Bahamas, January 1-5, on my 2005 Hunter 36.

I have been sailing three seasons on the Chesapeake Bay, often solo. Purchased this boat one year ago. I just arrived in Charleston, SC, to pick up experienced, short term crew member, and will be jumping out this morning for my first, two day, ocean passage to St. Augustine, Fl, as a shakedown, then continue south.

I am competent, but far from being an old salt. Weigh this against your own experience, interests, and availability, and advise. Thank you.

Hello K.

I appreciate the kind offer but if I'm going to fly down there, I'd prefer to come down and sail for a little longer than 5 days. Sounds fun though.

Jon

Jon, I will be sailing all Winter. My current crewmate departs T
the first week in January. I am looking for crew starting then, not for just that week.

Sorry guys. I didn't realize the forum would not automatically send me notifications of posts. I'll respond to you all now.

I'm currently in Vancouver, Canada and am available as long as I want to be, but at some point may want to jump into my own boat and equip it for the Milk run in April.

Re: Canadian, 43, Looking to Crew

We miscommunicated. I am looking for crew beginning the first we in January, through the winter season, to cruise the islands. The issue is that I want someone more experienced than I.

Re: Canadian, 43, Looking to Crew

Looks like I'm skipping the crew situation and heading to buy the boat. Thanks for the couple of offers for short trips and the inquiries. As for the others, I guess I just couldn't wait. Gotta get my boat in the water!

Thanks Ken. Gotta buy it first, but I'm working on it. Hope to have it under my feet and be sailing on it by end of January.
