Delivery skipper - Cheasapeake to Texas

Howdy Folks,

My wife and I are narrowing in on a boat (40ft full keeled mono) and before making our offer would like to get a feel for the price to get her back to her new home in Kemah TX. Assumption here is she's seaworthy and ready to go. If not we'd ensure she was prior to departure. Our goal is to be there for as much of the delivery as we can make work from a time perspective.

My wife and I have complete ASA training up through 104 but have very little ocean experience and would like the benefit of an experienced skipper getting her back. At this point the timing is a bit up in the air but for the sake of argument lets say around Thanksgiving.

If you're qualified and interested please PM me with contact information, references, your rates and any other pertinent info and we'll go from there.

Thanks in advance,
EB

Delivery skipper - Cheasapeake to Texas

Cost is typically $2 per sea mile plus expenses.

Www.ConnecticutCaptain.com

It would be helpful to know the exact starting location and the destination.

I can also offer crew at no cost except for food during the trip. Some crew might want travel costs also.

Typically a crew if four would be used on a trip like this. Five would make it easier.

If the batteries are at all questionable , I recommend replacing them. An auto-pilot is not essential but it is necessary on smaller crews. A life raft and safety gear is essential.

I'd need to see a complete list of all boat equipment and details like engine maintenance records. If the boat has sat for a while, the fuel should be polished and filters changed.

You really need to treat this like an airplane when it comes to maintenance. I'd need a full day to go over everything in the boat and I would want to do a rig inspection. There would be a fee for that also.

I plan trips in detail, including reviewing your survey, and that alone takes several days.

Hi Folks,

We do many deliveries, and own a charter sail company. For two masters/circumnavigators we charge $400 per day plus expenses. Am ASA instructor. Don't settle for lesser captains for price. We have top notch references. Captmarlena@yahoo.com

Re: Delivery skipper - Cheasapeake to Texas

Hello,

I am a TX resident, living in Dallas. I have extensive experience on sailboats and motorboats (inboard and outboard). I recently retired from 15 years as a project manager and I am a serious but easy going person.

I am looking for an adventure this winter. My rate is $2500 plus travel & food expenses per month.

I have been a surf guide in Panama for more than 10 years, I am healthy and a non smoker.

More information and references upon request.

Thank you,

Jeff Bryson
