Re: captain/mate/engineer/deckhand/diver etc etc

Hi Mindsofman,
I am arriving in San Diego late Feb from Australia to purchase a Beneteau 42'
(tbc) and am seeking assistance of an experienced skipper to help sail her back to Australia, commencing late March( approx)
If you are interested, I would love to hear from you.
I anticipate adding one or two casual crew, and expect to sail fro San Diego to Marquesas,Tahiti,Tonga,Fiji to Oz.
If you are available and interested, please email me with an estimate of your fee,plus C.V. and I will contact you to discuss further.
I have limited experience, none in ocean crossing, keen to apply myself.
I am 65 years young,fit non smoker and happy, this is the beginning of an adventure for me.
My partner Kate and I plan to cruise Australia and live aboard for a while.
Looking forward to hearing from you
Doug Thompson

Re: captain/mate/engineer/deckhand/diver etc etc

Hi:

If your other opportunity doesn't work out, we are looking for someone to join us for about six months beginning in March on a 60+ foot motor yacht (trawler) in the Bahamas and east coast of North America. We are an owner-operated boat, looking for someone to share the work and the adventures. Not looking for professional crew, willing to pay expenses, perhaps a little more. If interested email me at cruiserswanted at gmail dot com.

Hi Trawlercruisers..........
thanks for your email, it sounds like a great trip, but I will have to pass.
I'm still on track to buy in SanDiego and sail to Oz in April.
Good Luck!
Doug
