Ft Lauderdale -> Grand Bahama NOW ( December 15, 2010 )

Need a captain to bring our 44' Cheoy Lee sailboat from Ft Lauderdale to Grand Bahama this Wednesday December 15th. Will pay reasonable fee for one day trip, plus airline ticket back to Florida. Don't want to miss the weather window this week.

Let's see. It is Dec. 12th and you need a captain to take your sailboat from Ft. Lauderdale to Grand Bahama sight unseen, with no knowledge of your boat on the 15th. Good luck. If it is only a one day sail why are you not doing it yourself? Having made many deliveries I know that it take at least three days to go over the boat and make sure she is ready for the trip.

Might be because they are already in the Bahamas. But I agree, the Captain will need some time to go over the boat.
