Ex Navy Boatswains Mate/Deck Hand Looking for a ride

My name is Robby.I am a very fit 23 year old triathlete. I swam in college and have been in the Navy the past 4 years. I will be getting out honorably in late May. I am looking to jump on a boat as soon as possible and catch a long ride where ever you are going! I have a high knowledge of all deckhand work. I have a general knowledge of navigation (reading charts and navigating via paper charts as well as electronic -ex. VMP, or ICE-) I have sailed a few times and understand the basics. I have a passport and a clean record. I am very chill, rock climbing, kayak fisherman, surfer dude, scuba diving, mountaineer, hippie I guess you could say. I will be a great amount of help and fun on your boat! Thanks for looking!

I would also like to bring some fishing gear and my scuba set ups (have a couple sets for gear and multiple tanks) for all the crews use.

Aloha my name is Doug and I have a lovely 50' sailboat set up for ocean passages and self sufficiency at sea. I will be leaving Hawaii in May/June for the east coast where the boat is located and I have about 6-8 weeks of work ahead of us. Then sailing up to New York City with a few stops. In September, if the hurricane season is somewhat peaceful, we intend to take the boat South to Charleston, SC in one sail. From there we will wait out the rest of the Hurricane season in Charleston and nearby Savannah. We may also be working on the boat more and obtaining some canvass work in the south where it is cheaper. Our real need is around the end of January. Most of my friends will leave and I will be in the Bahamas or Turks. From there is where I really need a couple of extra hands for a sail ALL the way to San Diego California, via Jamaica, Carthenga, Colon and the canal, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Mexico, San Diego. Lots of fun and diving in between. I need to be in San Diego by May. If that interests you and want to see a lot of the best diving in the whold let me know.
Doug
