Last minute crew cancellation - new crew needed

Hi - so I had someone set for this gig, but he just let me know he can't make it. We're scheduled to leave around Tuesday the 17th (LESS THAN A WEEK!), traveling from St. Martin to Panama. 43' catamaran, 2 women, 1 dude, a kid and a kitten. Yes, we need one more seasoned sailor, you will have your own cabin. Non-smoking vessel.

It's going to be a great downwind sail - vessel has just been refit with new sails, all new rigging, engine overhaul etc. Well equipped with latest safety gear.

Re: Last minute crew cancellation - new crew needed

Hi My sailing experience is described at the www dot 7knots dot com website. I use the sailor id 12087 or sailor name rcole. My last crew position is not there yet. I finished last week. The trip was from Gibraltar to Corsica with a stop at Majorca. It was on a Dean 44' Catamaran. Owner/Captains recommendation is available. I would like to get further details. If you have a skype account maybe we could do it that way.

Re: Last minute crew cancellation - new crew needed

I've had to delete a number of rude and/or unhelpful posts in this thread.

This is crew wanted -- the guy is looking for crew. Be polite and constructive, please. This is one of those places (like classified ads) where if you don't have something nice to say, better say nothing at all. Further snarkiness will be sanctioned.
