Looking 4 a Mechanically Minded Person

Trip is from Colombia to Western Jamaica, Cayman Islands or Cuba depending on wind. we have 2 very apt sailors, one chef and now looking for a mechanic. Crew is 31(skipper) 28 (first mate) and 25 (chef) on 54 foot sailboat. Looking for someone to take care of all thing electrical/mechanical and the occasional watch. Option to stay on when we arrive wind depending on personality. No agenda, sail when we can, where we can...

Re: Looking 4 a Mechanically Minded Person


i believe we've messaged earlier. i am the recently retired mechanical engineer from Canada who has been looking to crew. am currently in St. Lucia helping a friend with plumbing/electrical repairs which are just about wrapped up. plan on doing a bit of day sailing with him before family arrives. am interested in joining you. if interested please respond in the next couple of days as i'm not sure how long i'll be here. i'm a little older but am pretty confident i can roll with you young guys. Cheers

Re: Looking 4 a Mechanically Minded Person

Hi Frazer,

Sounds like an awesome trip. I am a 26 y/o female, getting ready to graduate from the International Yacht Restoration School in Newport, RI. I have been studying Marine Systems and am ABYC certified in Electrical, Systems and Diesel Propulsion. I also have a NMEA (electronics) Installer cert. I have sailed over 13,000 nm since I started sailing in 2010. School has been great but looking forward to starting a new adventure and getting back to sea....

I'd love to hear more about the boat, the crew, and the program. MSG me if you are interested.
