Catamaran Crew Available May 2009 and forward

After April 2008, should anyone want a volunteer (plus pay his weight) crew member -- for a catamaran -- who can get himself anywhere, worldwide, on his own dime and generally support himself financially, and can get there on a flexible schedule / short notice - please count me in.

I'm, btw, also looking for anyone with a catamaran who can teach ASA 108 - Offshore Passage Making (anytime after April 2009) ... I can pay

What I'm looking for is experience on catamaran's. Either in helping delivery or with real cruisers who need an extra hand - especially for ocean passages.

By May 2009, I will have ASA certs in:
Basic Keelboat ; Coastal Cruising ; Bareboat Chartering; Coastal Navigation; Advanced Coastal Cruising; Celestial Navigation; New York State Safe Boating Certificate; Ham Radio License; SCUBA I & II....

I'm leaving the working world at the end of April 2009 (when my contract is up), plan to buy a catamaran for myself over summer, and start a circumnavigation next Fall.

My main goal is to get seat time and experience before I get my own cat.

Also, general advice is welcome - e.g. books/courses/seminars I should consider (e.g. Coastguard 100 ton License ? / EMT training / basket weaving ?) ; psychiatrist to consult about this wacky idea ; people with prior experience/similar goals ; recommended gear to buy etc...

Personal data- male, healthy, aged 37 years, comfortable with both mechanical and technical things
