Florida Keys - Bahamas

Looking for crew, single or couple, to explore the Keys and then to the Bahamas. Start around first of December to end of February - flexible on schedule.

Boat is a Mason 34, a true blue water boat.

I'd be pleased to work out the details with all responders.

Regards

Re: Florida Keys - Bahamas

Greetings captain,
On my card, I have " Ole salt sailor adventurist ", In the past 4 years, I have had the pleasure of rekindling my love ,fear relationship with that wonderful woman the sea. I sailed a 30 ft. Lipincott from kent island, maryland How cool it was to drop anchor @ sunset in key west on Christmas eve. did the winter workin crab & lobster boats, was fun interesting & a nice reminder, I can still work my ass off, which made me reconsider why , I was there. Than did a stint on a morgan to Bahamas's with a mate & a new boat buyer, what an adventure that turned out to be. after 3 1/2 days of 65 m.p.h. winds & 20 ft. seas, we had the owner take them helm, for no sleep or food for the 3 days, we were spent. He quickly & most efficiently got relieved after capsizing the vessel. when the electric & motor decided they cared not to work underwater, luckiely a flashlight had just a dim of a glow to hold her due east ,until the sound of the surf, we beached # cape Canaveral, glad as I was to be on land, had I found the beach 3 miles south, I coulda toured the launch pad, or 3 miles north, I could have had the pleasure of the nude beach, but no, I choosed smack in the middle of nowhere, any whoot this past may did a 1400 mile sail on a 50 ft.

ketch which was an epic adventure. So I have about 10,000 miles under sail, about 500,000 under power vessels, from being a navigator in oil research prior to these new fangled dangled gps's. man there nice ,but, im confused by them, & I suck at getting oil under my fingernails. however, I'm as easy to get along with as the stars are beautiful @ night, I have all the time in the world & its about time again to go see it breathe it & enjoyed.

I'll make a hellva third hand for the 3rd mate, can stay at the helm for 12 to 18 when or if required, look forward to hearing from ya ... @ times speak up ...

Re: Florida Keys - Bahamas

Can you tell us a little bit more about your typical day to day? And any expenses for the crew?

Re: Florida Keys - Bahamas

My plan is to slowly meander down the Keys starting in ft. Lauderdale hitting Dry Tortugas then head back up for a good jumping off point to the Bahamas with a good weather window.

I like to take no more than 5 or 6 hours to go from one anchorage to the next. Stop, swim, fish, read, chat repeat. Maybe spend 2 or 3 days at anchor if the spot is particularly appealing.

As for sharing costs food and supplies would be shared. I'll handle fuel, docking and Bahamas entry fee. Although if someone wants to add to that kitty I wouldn't refuse it.

Hi Grunfeld

Are you still looking for crew members?
Short and quick about me. I'm 34, have sailed for 28 years, I'm from Denmark and have a Danish yatchmaster. I'm planning a trip around the world at the moment. Planing to leave Europe in nov. to sail to St. Lucia (The ARC Race)

Cheers
Martin
