Re: Excellent crew with references.

We are headed from the Chesapeake Bay to the Bahamas in a few weeks and are looking for a third watch stander. The boat is a 62' custom aluminum sailing cat. I'll be glad to provide more info/details if you are interested. To be honest, we can't pay or cover transportation but only offer room and board. You would be welcome to hang out in the Bahamas for a short while depending on when we arrive. We have a charter that starts on March 23rd. Contact at sailelcie(at)geemail.com

Re: Excellent crew with references.

Cliff: Recently you have shown interest on my sail plan. It is easy for me to imagine that you are a serious sailor. Just what I would like to entertain! Here is my deal: I own an Endurance 36 (18,550lbs) sailing vessel, all fiberglass, single skin, and with an unusual internal structure designed by a naval arch. (will be glad to get to the particulars of that, if interested). However, capping it, resulted in five watertight cabins; very strong. Returning to my intended trip: I am now in south Florida with the intention to cross to Bimini (Gun key), to get into the Great Banks towards Nassau.
My destination this year is Trinidad Tobago in the way to South America. Passing, and hanging out in the many Caribbean Islands. To be honest with you, I need an experienced sailor, capable to stand four hrs watch in a vessel rigged cutter. All food and bevs. are in the house, as well as assistance with the return ticket. (unknown at this point). Vessel is an extremely well founded yacht with an eye on safety first, comfort following it. All control lines, running gear, and sheets end at the cockpit. So no need to get to the deck unnecessarily. All sails are brand new, as it is the boat. Safety equipment include two GPS (one portable hand held) sextant, deck safety jack lines, man overboard equipment, life preservers, and lots of prayers! Recently I was in 20 Ft. waves off the coast of Florida... no one pint of water shipped in! Inventory include four anchors, starting with a heavy duty 45lbs. new CQR, nothing below 35lbs. all on 3/8" chains. Capstan and gipsy on deck with chain lock. Owner/skipper (me) is a former N.Y. State Architect, now a Medical Doctor specialized in Cellular therapy (Stem Cell transplants). Among other things, my reasons for leaving the USA is the present government total apathy for what I do. I can't wait until Congress make up their mind (Like they know really what we do!) . OK Cliff, got the intention to inform you generally, and honestly. You can contact me at zeusdeus13@yahoo.com, or call me at (321) 506-6339 although my phone have been acting funny near the water, or in it, as I am. Sincerely, Car
